Good news everyone,
The Early Bird tickets for the AusCERT2012 conference have been extended to
Monday the 23rd April. To extend the savings, register with some work
colleagues and take advantage of the 'Buy 2 Get 1 Free' offer as well.
This week has given us a dump truck full of patches from Oracle for a long
list of their products. There was even a little extra provided in the
form of proof of concept exploit code for a MySQL DoS.
Apache released HTTP Server 2.4.2 to remedy CVE-2012-0883, and remind us
that the new generation 2.4.x branch of Apache HTTPD represents fifteen years
of innovation by the project. Here comes puberty for HTTPD.
Of particular note this week was a fix from OpenSSL for buffer overrun
vulnerability CVE-2012-2110, which was discovered by Tavis Ormandy of the
Google Security Team. Given the popularity of OpenSSL, expect to see this
patch flow out to many products in the following days.
Enjoy a good weekend,
