Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Remote Root Exploit in Samba

A remotely exploitable buffer overflow has been found in Samba. The version shipping with Jaguar, Samba-2.2.3, is vulnerable. You should either install the latest version or turn off Windows FileSharing (if you had it enabled) until Apple comes out with a Security Update.

Judging by their turn-around time with BIND, that should be in about two weeks.
