pcAnywhere Users Alert -- Patch Now!

SANS reports that Symantec has just released a document describing vulnerabilities for pcAnywhere users. You can click here to get details and a link to the document.

I know many campuses use pcAnywhere, and if that includes you and your campus, the advice is simple: patch it NOW!

SANS also reports that someone -- possibly/likely a bad guy -- has started scanning looking for services on port 5631 (used by pcAnywhere). While this is only one incident, the number of places using pcAnywhere is pretty high.
