=======================================================================1) Word From Secunia:

Monthly Binary Analysis Update (March)

March is over with 20 binary analyses issued and due to yet another
busy month, I'm again late on issuing this blog.

When tallying up the number of issued binary analyses this month, I was
surprised by all the interesting vulnerabilities analysed. You can't
help but loose track of them due to the very high number of
vulnerabilities being processed every day.

Therefore, selecting two or three interesting analyses issued by the
Secunia BA team has been quite difficult. So, instead of the usual rant
about a few issues, I will do a lot of shorter rants on many of the
issued analyses.
