Security advisories

This page all known Security Advisories for the NetWinder platform. These advisories generally come from upstream sourcees such as RedHat errata, securityfocus.com, and CERT advisories.

Not every upstream advisory results in a NetWinder advisory. This is because many exploits are specific to the x86 architecture, and because the NetWinder ships with a limited set of services enabled by default. As well, most NetWinder users do not have any untrusted local users, so local root exploits are not a great concern.

These advisories are also posted on the NetWinder bugtraq mailing list and newsgroup.
