Possible NetDevil Scanning

The Internet Storm Center has noted a concurrent rise in scans for ports 901, 902, and 903. This is consistent with the default ports used by the NetDevil (Backdoor-RP) trojan for control, keylogging communication, and file transfer. If anyone monitors outbound traffic to these ports, please notify us:

More information on the NetDevil trojan can be found at:

Red Hat Linux 7.1, 7.2, 7.3 and 8.0 end-of-life

As per their support policy, RedHat Software has announced that RedHat Linux 7.1, 7.2, 7.3 and 8.0 have reached their errata maintenance end-of-life.

RedHat will no longer be producing security, bugfix, or enhancement updates for these products. Note also, that Red Hat Linux 9 reaches its end of life on April 30, 2004.

Those of you running these systems should consider migrating to newer versions.
