Weekly Linux Security Digest 2000/09/04 to 2000/09/10

[SP] More bad news this week in regards to glibc. A number of string-related problems have been found; chances are, if you updated glibc last week, you need to do it again. Another popular utility, screen, has also been found to contain problems. If it's setuid, you probably have a problem. Some good news: kernel 2.2.17 is now available, and fixes numerous problems. Upgrading is a good idea.
