Handbook for bloggers and cyber-dissidents

Blogs get people excited. Or else they disturb and worry them. Some people distrust them. Others see them as the vanguard of a new information revolution. Because they allow and encourage ordinary people to speak up, they’re tremendous tools of freedom of expression. Bloggers are often the only real journalists in countries where the mainstream media is censored or under pressure. Only they provide independent news, at the risk of displeasing the government and sometimes courting arrest. Reporters Without Borders has produced this handbook to help them, with handy tips and technical advice on how to to remain anonymous and to get round censorship, by choosing the most suitable method for each situation. It also explains how to set up and make the most of a blog, to publicise it (getting it picked up efficiently by search-engines) and to establish its credibility through observing basic ethical and journalistic principles.

Unchecked Buffers in VERITAS Storage Exec
Buffer overflow vulnerabilities were discovered in multiple DCOM server components that are part of VERITAS Storage Exec and StorageCentral. The components could be exploited through calls to associated ActiveX controls if a user launched malicious HTML code.
Such code could arrive via email or be stored in a file or on a Web server. A successful exploit might lead to a system crash or allow access to the local system. Symantec released hotfixes for Storage Exec and StorageCentral to correct the problems.
