New Solaris Vulnerability Calculator, Sun Mailing list, and Sun Focus area from SecurityFocus.com

Security-Focus.com is pleased to announce the availability of a new feature
on our site, that we call the Solaris Vulnerability Calculator.  By simply
entering the information for a given revision of Solaris, and a list of
patches installed on the system being evaluated, the vulnerability calculator
will give a list of the vulnerabilities that may still be present on the
system, along with the list of patches missing, when available.  We hope it
will significantly cut down on the amount of time it takes someone to do an
initial evaluation of their Solaris system security.  As new vulnerabilities
and patches become available, they will be integrated into our database.
The Vulnerability Calculator can help keep track of these new vulnerabilities,
and what new patches need to be installed.  It can be accessed at:

We are also pleased to announce the formation of a new mailing list,
dedicated to all aspects of security for Sun products.  It is intended to be
a forum where people at a wide variety of experience levels can go to ask, seek
advice, or relate some of their experiences, as related to security aspects of
products from Sun.  Have some tips or advice about patching the latest Solaris
vulnerability?  A perfect post.  Confused about what the security impact of
a service is?  Also a perfect topic.  In contrast to Bugtraq, this list is not
about vulnerabilities -- it is about addressing common security problems and
concerns specific to Sun's product line.  The list can be subscribed to by
sending the following command, in the body of a mail message,  to
listserv () securityfocus com:

The FAQ for the Focus-Sun mailing list can be found at:

In conjunction with this mailing list, we're also rolling out a new area on
our site, dedicated to Sun products as well.  This area will highlight the
aspects of our site specific to Sun users.  Vulnerabilities, commercial
products, free tools, and publications relevant to Sun products are all easily
available.  On a regular basis, exclusive Security-Focus.com articles, covering
such topics as secure installation of Solaris, securely installing Solaris, and
other less widely understood aspects of Sun products will be published.  The
site can be seen at:

If you have any questions or comments about the Focus-Sun area, or the Focus-Sun
mailing list, please feel free to mail me.
