I. FRONT AND CENTER
---------------------
1. Anti-Social Networking
By Mark Rasch
On May 15, 2008, a federal grand jury Los Angeles indicted 49-year-old Lori Drew of O.Fallon, Missouri, on charges of unauthorized access to a computer, typically used in hacking cases. Yet, Drew's alleged actions had little to do with computer intrusions.

2. Thinking Beyond the Ivory Towers
By Dave Aitel
In the information-security industry, there are clear and vast gaps in the way academia interacts with professional researchers. While these gaps will be filled in due time, their existence means that security professionals outside the hallowed halls of colleges and universities need to be aware of the differences in how researchers and professionals think.

II. MICROSOFT VULNERABILITY SUMMARY
------------------------------------

BugTraq ID: 29327
Remote: Yes
Date Published: 2008-05-21
Relevant URL: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/29327
Summary:
Snort is prone to a security-bypass weakness because of a design error affected by the Time To Live values of disassembled network packets.

This issue affects Snort 2.8 and 2.6 on multiple platforms.

3. Foxit Reader 'util.printf()' Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability
BugTraq ID: 29288
Remote: Yes
Date Published: 2008-05-20
Relevant URL: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/29288
Summary:
Foxit Reader is prone to a remote buffer-overflow vulnerability when handling PDF files with specially crafted JavaScript code.

Exploiting this issue may allow attackers to corrupt memory and execute arbitrary machine code in the context of users running the affected application. Failed exploits will likely cause denial-of-service conditions.

This issue affects Foxit Reader 2.3 build 2825; other versions may also be affected.

4. Computer Associates ARCserve Backup 'caloggerd' and 'xdr' Functions Multiple Remote Vulnerabilities
BugTraq ID: 29283
