A GDM buffer overflow came out this week to bugtraq, in the XDMCP packet parsing. Debian wasn't vulnerable in the default configuration (XDMCP is disabled), but several people do turn it on.

Building CDs is the fun of the week, and I think I might have something useful soon


I got a short bit of nethacking in tonight. I really need to spend some time there this weekend and call relax();
