X-Force Research at ISS has discovered a remote exploit in ProFTPD's handling of ASCII translations that an attacker, by downloading a carefully crafted file, can exploit and gain a root shell. The source distributions on have all been replaced with patched versions. All ProFTPD users are strongly urged to upgrade to one of the patched versions as soon as possible.

Note that the upgraded package does not change the displayed version number to 1.2.8p (it remains 1.2.8), but we've verified the source code to make sure that this is in fact the patched version. We recommend all sites running ProFTPD upgrade to the new package right away.

Update apache 2:
A problem was discovered in Apache2 where CGI scripts that output more than 4k of output to STDERR will hang the script's execution which can cause a Denial of Service on the httpd process because it is waiting for more input from the CGI that is not forthcoming due to the locked write() call in mod_cgi.

Mandrake linux security

Pentru ca cei ce folosesc CUPS ca server de printer, implementarea Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) este o gaura serioasa de securitate.
Versiunile de Mandrake care contin CUPS si sunt afectate de acest bug: 9.0 si Corporate Server 2.1.
A bug in versions of CUPS prior to 1.1.19 was reported in the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) implementation would result in CUPS going into a busy loop, which could result in a Denial of Service (DoS) condition. To be able to exploit this problem, an attacker would need to be able to make a TCP connection to the IPP port (port 631 by default).
Pentru autoupdate folositi mandrakeupdate sau urpmi. O lista de mirror-uri pentru download, de aici:
