    "The vulnerability exists in an update to the way the Snort intrusion
    detection system handles network data produced by the BackOrifice program,
    a seven-year-old remote administration tool used by online attackers to
    control compromised systems."

    Sorry, after reading the article it was 10 days old. Here is the update.

    "Patch roundup Wednesday became a busy patching day for sys admins with the
    release of Oracle's quarterly patch roundup - boasting an impressive 85
    software fixes - and an update designed to defend the popular Snort open
    source intrusion detection application against possible hacker attack."
