I know this is supposed to be a perl website, however I know a lot of the bretheren use linux, so I just wanted to warn everone of a new worm that was posted by CERT.
I will accept all flames for going off topic.
I trust the reliability of this node because this email was sent to my university's sysadmin and he passed it on to our school LUG. The node containing this CERT warning and all applicable links is quite long, so it can be seen here:
Stay aware of security/ ATtention Linux perl monks
I apologize for putting it in two places, just didn't quite know what the best place to spread this to the members of the community.;^}
