Hello, Sorry for the completely OT post, but I saw two mentions of PuTTY in one day on the list and assume it must be a popular piece of Windows software. The SANS Institute "@Risk" newsletter dated 8AUG04 contains the following item regarding PuTTY:
04.31.4 CVE: Not Available Platform: Third Party Windows Apps Title: PuTTY Remote Buffer Overflow Description: PuTTY is a free Telnet and SSH client. It has been reported that PuTTY is subject to a pre-authentication buffer overflow that can allow malicious servers to execute code on a client machine as it attempts to negotiate connection. PuTTY 0.54 and previous versions are vulnerable. Ref: http://www.coresecurity.com/common/showdoc.php?idx=417&idxseccion=10 Again, sorry for the OT post, but it seems (at least) very marginally relevant to some. We now return you regularly scheduled program of FBSD.... Regards, Stheg __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? New and Improved Yahoo!
