Avaya releases financial results, introduces Libsafe for Linux


Author: JT Smith

Buried in a Canada Newswire press release about Avaya Inc.’s quarterly results is a little update about Libsafe for Linux: Avaya Labs introduced Libsafe 2.0, an enhanced version of its free
security software for the popular Linux operating system. Libsafe
version 2.0 adds the ability to protect against security attacks that
exploit “format string” vulnerabilities in software, including
programs that are widely deployed as part of the Internet
infrastructure. Libsafe extends its protection to all application
programs running on a system, and will even help to protect programs
that have vulnerabilities yet to be discovered.
