corporate update solution?
Authored by: nhl00 on Jul 08, '02 02:31:17PM

In my opinion these are two different problems - the first problem (security) I would rate as moderate. If I understand it properly, the exploit requires that you on the same network as the target machine (they go through you, as opposed to you "reaching out and touching someone") So you can root a co-workers machine. Not good, but you could do that just by sitting at their desk...

As for allowing other software to update - it would be awesome if my software update automatically checked for all of my softare. No need to troll version tracker and compare release versions!

just my $0.02 worth
