http://www.vnunet.com/News/1131665 By James Middleton [10-05-2002] Internet Storm Centre offers latest security alerts The Sans Institute's Incidents.org security watchtower has launched a new monitoring centre to keep track of threats in the wild. The Internet Storm Centre lives at isc.incidents.org and informs network administrators of the latest security alerts and real-time threats. Currently we're well in the green on the threat level meter and there are no current alerts. But the Storm Centre is warning that widespread port 80 scans, still being caused by Nimda and Code Red, are dominating all other activity. The Storm Centre is also keeping its eyes peeled for exploits of yesterday's Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol Daemon (DHCPD). An advisory from the Computer Emergency Response Team (Cert) warned that a format string vulnerability in the Internet Software Consortium's DHCPD could allow a remote attacker to execute code with root privileges on the server that allocates network addresses and assigns configuration parameters to hosts. The Storm Centre is located here . The Cert advisory on the ISC DHCPD can be found here .  http://isc.incidents.org/  http://www.cert.org/advisories/CA-2002-12.html - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
