Security Linux News for Apr 07, 2001

  • UNIXReview: SSH, the Secure Shell: The Definitive Guide [Book Review] (2001-04-07 21:00:07)
    "This book is so loaded with valuable and important information that anyone using or administering SSH should read it thoroughly."

  • O'Reilly Network: Beyond Firewalls (2001-04-07 17:51:49)
    "As I explained in my previous article, Securing Your Home Network With the Edge Firewall , a firewall is the first line of defense for a home network -- not the entire defense. Now you have to go through each computer on your network rigorously looking for problems and locking down everything as tight as you can. This is especially true for any server machines you may have running."

  • Immunix OS Security update for ntp and xntp3 (2001-04-07 04:10:57)
    "Przemyslaw Frasunek has found a buffer overflow in the ntpd package. The StackGuard protection in Immunix is effective at stopping this attack. If the published exploit is run against the Immunix version, it will cause ntpd to exit with a StackGuard detection message but no penetration vulnerability is possible. WireX is releasing updated packages to prevent the residual DoS attack."
