Linux Security Week, June 19th 2000

[LS.C] After two weeks of constant advisories, its comforting to see the amount of activity die down. This week, various advisories exists for the Document Template package, BRU Backup Utility, Kerberos 5, and a bug on FreeBSD/Alpha systems that weakens its encryption. Take time to Review your system for these packages and update immediately if affected. Keep in mind that simply because your vendor has not released a update that another vendor may have does not mean your system is not vulnerable.
