A few of the tools I'm rather fond of have been updated recently, if any of our readers use them, you might want to update.  We already mentioned that Wireshark has been updated to v1.0.4.  Tcpdump and libpcap have been updated to v4.0, I saw the announcement thanks to the wireshark folks.  Also, our friend Daniel Cid has updated OSSEC to v1.6.1.  Matthieu Suiche has updated win32dd to v1.2

New versions of FIrefox 2 & 3 were released this evening.  Firefox 2.0.0.18 fixes 11 security vulnerabilities 6 of them critical including 2 remote code executions.  Firefox 3.0.4 fixes 9 security vulnerabilities, 4 of them critical including remote code execution.  As we've mentioned before, the Mozilla folks recommend that folks still running FF2 upgrade to FF3 as soon as possible.  Also, they have released Seamonkey 1.1.13 which fixes the same 11 security vulnerabilities as FF 2.0.0.18.
