Linux firms have plugged flaws from last week, but new 'GLIBC' hole has manifested itself. The flaws in some Linux programs that have let crackers infiltrate hundreds of servers in past weeks have been plugged in updated Linux distributions, but another vulnerability appears to have made it into at least one of the latest versions.

    Both Red Hat and SuSe said vulnerabilities in RPC.STATD and WU-FTPD have been fixed in its latest distributions.

    The vulnerabilities can be used to obtain root privilege remotely, and were closed only after SuSe had begun pressing CDs for its new products.
