Novell serves up a six-pack of patches

In the last week, Novell has released a multitude of patches. While most of them are minor, Exterminator found two related to the Padlock Fix from a couple weeks ago. Trend Micro serves up the usual viruses, but Microsoft admins get a well-deserved break.


Exterminator brings you weekly updates on bug fixes, virus recovery, service release announcements, and security notices for Windows, Novell, Linux, and other systems.
