1171: CERT Advisory: IP Spoofing Attacks and Hijacked Terminals

      The CERT Coordination Center has received reports of attacks in
      which intruders create packets with spoofed source IP addresses.
      These attacks exploit applications that use authentication based
      on IP addresses. This exploitation leads to user and possibly root
      access on the targeted system. Note that this attack does not
      involve source routing. Recommended solutions are described in
      Section III below.

1175: SUG's Advanced Solaris Sysadmin; San Francisco, CA
      ADVANCED SOLARIS SYSTEM ADMINISTRATION
      San Francisco, California
      Friday, May 26, 1995 9am-5pm

      "Advanced Solaris System Administration" is one of the most
      popular of the Sun User Group's UNIX seminars. Its first run,
      held in Boston, Massachusetts, sold out in weeks, despite the
      added sessions. In response to popular demand from West coast
      members, the Sun User Group is very pleased to be offering this
      sought after and acclaimed course in San Francisco.

      This session of "Advanced Solaris System Administration" will
      be offered on one day only. ENROLLMENT IS LIMITED TO
      THE FIRST FORTY PAID REGISTRATIONS. Unfortunately,
      we will not be able to add any other dates at this time.

9001: General FlashBack/SunFlash Information

      This article contains general information about the electronic
      journals that I edit and publish: "SunFlash" , "The Sun
      FlashBack" and "The Internet Sun FlashBack"

      I produced "The Florida SunFlash" for nearly six years.
      "SunFlash" is the continuation of that journal. When "SunFlash"
      grew to about 100 articles per month, 140,000+ subscribers and
      30,000+ article requests per month I decided that it was time to
      make some changes. For a variety of reasons, I started the two
      new journals, "The Sun FlashBack" and "The Internet Sun
      FlashBack" , and moved production of all three journals to an
      independent company with its own resouces and Internet domain
      (FlashBack.COM).

      My goal, as always, is to provide useful, timely, high-quality
      information to the Sun user community.

      This article contains a one line index entry for each of the
      articles posted to the electronic journals that I edit and
      publish: "SunFlash" , "The Sun FlashBack" and "The Internet Sun
