    Mandrake 8.2 users READ IN NOW

    There's a potential security hole in Drake's default security setup.

    I implore you:
    Go into the Mandrake Control Center, security settings, and make sure it's set to at least "High" or you may have problems.
    I won't post details publicly right now due to the potential risk involved, sorry.

    I don't know if earlier versions are effected or not.

    I figured you might get a kick out of this. CERT basically shot me down
    and missed my point entirely.

    Their arguement?
    "This utility accurately and consistently performs as documented" and as such, RTFM Mr. L4m3r.

    Yea, it works as documented, but that doesn't make the behavior proper security for "multi-user local use".

    Using that arguement, MS could document how Code Red/Nimda can make IIS vulnerable - henceforth making it a non-issue since it would
    "accurately and consistently perform as documented"


    pffffffffffffft
