Today's article, linked to above, covers an HPUX issue, MySQL issues,  
and most importantly, an issue present in OpenSSH that likely will  
involve updates for all OpenSSH-enabled systems. The attack vector to  
OpenSSH ties into weak passwords, and such an attack would be overly  
noisy. However, I still recommend updating systems when an update is  
available from your vendor. A current workaround is presented as well.
