A buffer overflow has been discovered in the Socks-5 proxy code of
XChat, an IRC client for X similar to AmIRC.  This allows an attacker
to execute arbitrary code on the users' machine.


   There is a vulnerability in Cisco's Internetwork Operating System
   (IOS) SNMP service. When vulnerable Cisco routers or switches process
   specific SNMP requests, the system may reboot. If repeatedly
   exploited, this vulnerability could result in a sustained denial of
   service (DoS).


Updated kernel packages that fix several minor security vulnerabilities are
now available

Ciao e alla prossima!
