LinuxSecurity.com: Linux Advisory Watch, September 22nd, 2000

“A majority of the advisories released this week were for
syslogd/klogd. Caldera, SuSE, Mandrake, Trustix, Slackware, Debian,
and RedHat have all made updated packages available.
It is
important that you update this package because the vulnerability
could result in a local root compromise.”

“Other advisories included glint, screen, and xchat. Screen also
has the risk of a local root compromise. The glint vulnerability
can be used to maliciously destruct files.”

“Our sponsor this week is OpenDoc Publishing. Their 480-page
comprehensive security book, Securing and Optimizing Linux, takes a
hands-on approach to installing, optimizing, configuring, and
securing Red Hat Linux. Topics include sendmail 8.10.1, OpenSSL,
ApacheSSL, OpenSSH and much more! Includes Red Hat 6.2 and Red Hat
6.2 PowerTools edition.”
