This just hit the snort-sigs list this afternoon:

Subject: [Snort-sigs] php overflow signatures

Below are the initial signatures for the PHP overflow that is about to
get a bunch of publication. Have fun and whatnot.

Sourceforge's CVS server is broken, so these are not yet in CVS.

Hello it me again: belkin usb kvm and linux - usb mouse not working :|
Hello there,

I don't know if anaybody can help me out with this problem. Basically, Ive just got myself a belkin ominiview usb kvm switch(link here) and it works fine when I use it with windows, but as soon as I try to use it with linux (Im using mandrake 8.1) I cannot for the life of me get my usb mouse to work (I'm using a m$ explorer mouse).

As far as I can see, the usb mouse is recognised in the system but the cursor will not budge. The keyboard works as its plugged into the ps/2 port on the front of the switch.

Ive tried attaching the mouse directly to the usb port on the back of the linux box and 'hey presto' it works, but I dont particularly want to have to use an extra mouse for the machine.

Anybody got any suggestions?

Current Mood: awake
Anyone know where to find isos of mandrake gaming edition?? halflife without wine would be rather nice...
