Openwall-Announce: John the Ripper Pro 1.7.3+ for Linux  18 July 2008 
Source: Openwall - Posted by Bill Keys   
This is likely the last announcement posting for today, and maybe for this month. It is to announce availability of John the Ripper 1.7.3 Pro for Linux (stable release) and 1.7.3.1 Pro for Mac OS X (currently in public beta).I'd like to thank Alain Espinosa for the optimized NTLM code, and for kindly placing it in the public domain. This release of JtR Pro includes Alain's code with slight modifications, as well as replacement code for the password file loader; I am going to roll these into the next revision of the jumbo patch. Have you heard John the Ripper 1.7.3 Pro for Linux was just release? Test it out for yourself and let us know what you think about this release.
 
Latest VLC Patches Security Vulnerability, Fixes Other Bugs  14 July 2008

Users of the open source VLC media player should download version 0.8.6i to avoid a serious vulnerability in previous releases. According to a security advisory released by the VideoLAN project, a maliciously crafted WAV file could either crash VLC or cause the execution of arbitrary code. In common with so many vulnerabilities that can be exploited through media files, this is another buffer overflow problem. I use VLC because it supports so many different formats but, why did this security vulnerability got so much attention in the news?
