First off, I'd like to apologize for not getting the announcement of
these updates out sooner. We've all been busy here working on getting
Immunix 7 out the door, which has much better protection than just
StackGuard (yes, it includes a format string solution...) The packages
have been available on our web site for a number of days now, but that's
no excuse for me not getting these messages out sooner.
RedHat has put out an update to the ypbind package due to a potential
root exploit through a format buffer bug (see
http://www.redhat.com/support/errata/RHSA-2000-086-05.html for more
information on this problem.)
I have built packages for this update for Immunix OS 6.2 (StackGuarded
versions of the RedHat packages.) They can be found at:
and for the source lovers out there:
