"This week, the most interesting news items include "ICMP UsageIn Scanning v3.0," "Securing The New Perimeter," "Recovering froman attack," and "The Social Engineer." With the exception of thefirst article mentioned, the articles provide a good introduction to each topic and are intended toward novice readers.

This week, advisories were released for gnupg, ispell, and xinetd. Thevendors include Conectiva, Red Hat, and SuSE. It seems to bea rather slowweek, but that does not mean that vulnerabilities do notexist. Weeks suchas this are a good time to go back and evaluateadvisories from previousweeks. Did you miss one?
