The Lion worm is a concerning topic among many Linux users. SANS has written a good paper discussing the problem in great detail. It is available in the Network Security section of this newsletter. Also t his week, a few of the interesting articles include "Network Security Essentials: Applications and Standards," "filtering Packets with iptables," and "Ten Key Steps to Protection from Denial Of Service Attacks."
This week advisories were released for licq, sgml-tools, openssh, kerberos, vim, joe, and eperl. The vendors include Conectiva, Immunix, Mandrake, Red Hat, SuSE, and Trustix. Please take the necessary time to patch your system. Security requires persistence.
