Weekly Linux Security Digest 2000/08/21 to 2000/08/27

[SP] The weekly security newsletter by Kurt Seifried. Most vendors are just cleaning up problems from the last week or two (you try packaging Netscape so it doesn't crash every fifteen minutes). The big announcement this week is of course PGP. Helix GNOME's installer has a root hack; Gopherd probably has more root hacks (sadly enough, there are still many gopher servers around). A nasty hole has been found in minicom, a popular modem program.
