"This week, many good papers were released. You should begin by reading "Deploying the Squid proxy server on Linux," "Is your web server running unnecessary software," and "The High Price of a Vulnerability." This last article is particularly interesting. The author, Greg Shipley, states "IT managers can't get upper management to do anything about security."

"Thank you for reading the LinuxSecurity.com weekly security newsletter. The purpose of this document is to provide our readers with a quick summary of each week's most relevant Linux security headlines."

"This week, advisories were released for pgp4pine, vixie-cron, ssh, CUPS, glibc, bind, and sendmail. The vendors include Immunix, NetBSD, Mandrake, Red Hat, SuSE, TurboLinux. It is critical that you update all vulnerable packages."
