Review: Googling Security: How Much Does Google Know About You
--------------------------------------------------------------
If I ask "How much do you know about Google?" You may not take even a
second to respond.  But if I may ask "How much does Google know about
you"? You may instantly reply "Wait... what!? Do they!?"  The book
"Googling Security: How Much Does Google Know About You" by Greg Conti
(Computer Science Professor at West Point) is the first book to reveal
how Google's vast information stockpiles could be used against you or
your business and what you can do to protect yourself.

A Secure Nagios Server
----------------------
Nagios is a monitoring software designed to let you know about problems
on your hosts and networks quickly. You can configure it to be used on
any network. Setting up a Nagios server on any Linux distribution is a
very quick process however to make it a secure setup it takes some
work. This article will not show you how to install Nagios since there
are tons of them out there but it will show you in detail ways to
improve your Nagios security.

* Mandriva: Subject: [Security Announce] [ MDVSA-2009:230 ] pidgin (Sep 11)
  -------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed in pidgin: The
  msn_slplink_process_msg function in libpurple/protocols/msn/slplink.c
  in libpurple, as used in Pidgin (formerly Gaim) before 2.5.9 and
  Adium 1.3.5 and earlier, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary
  code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application
  crash) by sending multiple crafted SLP (aka MSNSLP) messages to
  trigger an overwrite of an arbitrary memory location.  NOTE: this
  issue reportedly exists because of an incomplete fix for
  CVE-2009-1376 (CVE-2009-2694). Unspecified vulnerability in Pidgin
  2.6.0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash)
  via a link in a Yahoo IM (CVE-2009-3025) protocols/jabber/auth.c in
  libpurple in Pidgin 2.6.0, and possibly other versions, does not
  follow the require TLS/SSL preference when connecting to older Jabber
  servers that do not follow the XMPP specification, which causes
  libpurple to connect to the server without the expected encryption
  and allows remote attackers to sniff sessions (CVE-2009-3026).
  libpurple/protocols/irc/msgs.c in the IRC protocol plugin in
  libpurple in Pidgin before 2.6.2 allows remote IRC servers to cause a
  denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash)
  via a TOPIC message that lacks a topic string (CVE-2009-2703). The
  msn_slp_sip_recv function in libpurple/protocols/msn/slp.c in the MSN
  protocol plugin in libpurple in Pidgin before 2.6.2 allows remote
  attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and
  application crash) via an SLP invite message that lacks certain
  required fields, as demonstrated by a malformed message from a KMess
  client (CVE-2009-3083). The msn_slp_process_msg function in
  libpurple/protocols/msn/slpcall.c in the MSN protocol plugin in
  libpurple 2.6.0 and 2.6.1, as used in Pidgin before 2.6.2, allows
  remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via
  a handwritten (aka Ink) message, related to an uninitialized variable
  and the incorrect UTF16-LE charset name (CVE-2009-3084). The XMPP
  protocol plugin in libpurple in Pidgin before 2.6.2 does not properly
  handle an error IQ stanza during an attempted fetch of a custom
  smiley, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
  (application crash) via XHTML-IM content with cid: images
  (CVE-2009-3085). This update provides pidgin 2.6.2, which is not
  vulnerable to these issues.

  overflow in the SIEVE script component (sieve/script.c) in
  cyrus-imapd in Cyrus IMAP Server 2.2.13 and 2.3.14 allows local users
  to execute arbitrary code and read or modify arbitrary messages via a
  crafted SIEVE script, related to the incorrect use of the sizeof
  operator for determining buffer length, combined with an integer
  signedness error (CVE-2009-2632). This update provides a solution to
  this vulnerability.

  via application crash, or possibly execute arbitrary code with the
  privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-1720,
  CVE-2009-1721) It was discovered that OpenEXR did not properly handle
  certain malformed EXR image files. If a user were tricked into
  opening a crafted EXR image file, an attacker could cause a denial of
  service via application crash, or possibly execute arbitrary code
  with the privileges of the user invoking the program. This issue only
  affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. (CVE-2009-1722)
