Folks,

Pardon my ignorance, but could someone tell me more on the SuSE 7.1 security
scripts reporting promiscious mode on my network card? I gather I should be
worried... And can someone tell me where the 'harden-suse' scripts are on
7.1, I am sure I heard of them at some point in earlier versions (SuSE 6.4
perhaps?)

I'm using kernal 2.4 by the way... and the message reported below was via
email to my root account:

+ Checking devices for promiscious mode.
+ inet6 addr: fe80::260:97ff:fe84:e773/10 Scope:Link
+ inet6 addr: fe80::60:9784:e773/10 Scope:Link
+ UP BROADCAST RUNNING PROMISC MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1

All help is appreciated - please post reply to the newsgroup, thanks
randelld
