    Sans Top 20 2003

    I did a search of the past week and was surprised I didn’t fine this here.i always see this here first. Well I used too.

    This is a list of the most commom vulns from last year, what their about and what you can do to defend against them. It’s really quit a good read

    This updated SANS Top Twenty is actually two Top Ten lists: the ten most commonly exploited vulnerable services in Windows and the ten most commonly exploited vulnerable services in UNIX and Linux.

    The Top Twenty is a consensus list of vulnerabilities that require immediate remediation. It is the result of a process that brought together dozens of leading security experts. They come from the most security-conscious federal agencies in the US, UK and Singapore; the leading security software vendors and consulting firms; the top university-based security programs; many other user organizations; and the SANS Institute.
