I've got to make a presentation about the security aspects of world wide
information servers such as Gopher, WAIS and WWW/Mosaic. I'd be specially

I've got plenty of material for the telnet URL hole in Mosaic 2.2 and lynx
2.2, but very little for the hole closed in Gopher 1.12 last summer or for
the use of chroot in Gopher 1.13 or 2.014, and nothing at all for WAIS and
If you have written or read about this recently, I would be most grateful

If interest is shown, I'll post a summary.
Thanks in advance
