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.

  in fetchmail before 6.3.11 does not properly handle a '\0' character
  in a domain name in the subject's Common Name (CN) field of an X.509
  certificate, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof
  arbitrary SSL servers via a crafted certificate issued by a
  legitimate Certification Authority, a related issue to CVE-2009-2408
  (CVE-2009-2666). This update provides a solution to this
  vulnerability.

http://www.linuxsecurity.com/content/view/149745

* Mandriva: Subject: [Security Announce] [ MDVSA-2009:198 ] firefox (Aug 7)
  -------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Security issues were identified and fixed in firefox 3.0.x: Security
  researcher Juan Pablo Lopez Yacubian reported that an attacker could
  call window.open() on an invalid URL which looks similar to a
  legitimate URL and then use document.write() to place content within
  the new document, appearing to have come from the spoofed location
  (CVE-2009-2654). Moxie Marlinspike reported a heap overflow
  vulnerability in the code that handles regular expressions in
  certificate names. This vulnerability could be used to compromise the
  browser and run arbitrary code by presenting a specially crafted
  certificate to the client (CVE-2009-2404). IOActive security
  researcher Dan Kaminsky reported a mismatch in the treatment of
  domain names in SSL certificates between SSL clients and the
  Certificate Authorities (CA) which issue server certificates. These
  certificates could be used to intercept and potentially alter
  encrypted communication between the client and a server such as
  sensitive bank account transactions (CVE-2009-2408). This update
  provides the latest Mozilla Firefox 3.0.x to correct these issues.
  Additionally, some packages which require so, have been rebuilt and
  are being provided as updates.

http://www.linuxsecurity.com/content/view/149700 

* Mandriva: Subject: [Security Announce] [ MDVSA-2009:197 ] nss (Aug 7)
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  Security issues in nss prior to 3.12.3 could lead to a
  man-in-the-middle attack via a spoofed X.509 certificate
  (CVE-2009-2408) and md2 algorithm flaws (CVE-2009-2409), and also
  cause a denial-of-service and possible code execution via a long
  domain name in X.509 certificate (CVE-2009-2404). This update
  provides the latest versions of NSS and NSPR libraries which are not
  vulnerable to those attacks.

* Mandriva: Subject: [Security Announce] [ MDVSA-2009:196 ] samba (Aug 7)
  -----------------------------------------------------------------------
  Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in samba:
  Multiple format string vulnerabilities in client/client.c in
  smbclient in Samba 3.2.0 through 3.2.12 might allow context-dependent
  attackers to execute arbitrary code via format string specifiers in a
  filename (CVE-2009-1886). The acl_group_override function in
  smbd/posix_acls.c in smbd in Samba 3.0.x before 3.0.35, 3.1.x and
  3.2.x before 3.2.13, and 3.3.x before 3.3.6, when dos filemode is
  enabled, allows remote attackers to modify access control lists for
  files via vectors related to read access to uninitialized memory
  (CVE-2009-1888). This update provides samba 3.2.13 to address these
  issues.

* Mandriva: Subject: [Security Announce] [ MDVSA-2009:195-1 ] apr (Aug 6)
  -----------------------------------------------------------------------
  A vulnerability has been identified and corrected in apr and
  apr-util: Multiple integer overflows in the Apache Portable Runtime
  (APR) library and the Apache Portable Utility library (aka APR-util)
  0.9.x and 1.3.x allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service
  (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors
  that trigger crafted calls to the (1) allocator_alloc or (2)
  apr_palloc function in memory/unix/apr_pools.c in APR; or crafted
  calls to the (3) apr_rmm_malloc, (4) apr_rmm_calloc, or (5)
  apr_rmm_realloc function in misc/apr_rmm.c in APR-util; leading to
  buffer overflows. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third
  party information (CVE-2009-2412). This update provides fixes for
  these vulnerabilities.

  Update:

  apr-util packages were missing for Mandriva Enterprise Server 5 i586,
  this has been adressed with this update.
