Thanks, Ted, I know a lot of users were curious about those fixes. Have a gander at -stable!

    Does that mean the release version has had known remote exploits for 4 days now?

    My main box have been 3.0->3.1 and will now be upgraded to 3.2. What shall i do with the apps from the ports tree (and other packages) that i installed under 3.0/3.1. Do i have to uninstall/reinstall the new version of the pkg or just leave it until something breaks? Will it break?

    and if you're brave enough, give a try to the UBC branch of the kernel.

    Art seems to be working hard on it. I'm running it and nothing bad happened so far except a noticeable performance improvement. Great, great, great, definitively great!

    How can i see this new stuff through a browser?

    Not a single patch on http://www.openbsd.org/errata.htm

    Typically, OpenBSD keeps security holes secret!

    From http://www.openbsd.org/errata.html:
    "A buffer overflow can occur in the kadmind(8) daemon, leading to possible remote crash or exploit."

    Then the claim "One remote hole in the default install, in nearly 6 years!" should be updated to "Two remote holes in the default install, in nearly 6 years!"

    If not I would like an explanation to why not.

    Are patches made for Apache when security holes are found?

    I think I was forced to install Apace by hand since a patch wasn't released for a security issue with Apache.

    Nice, but the pf and apache patches is still missing form http://www.openbsd.org/errata.html :(

    When is it going to be updated?
    If not then why not?

    001: SECURITY FIX: October 21, 2002

    NO, I wasn't released on the 21. of October!
    Why use wrong dates, maybe to hide something?
