SUMMARY: unauthorized access attempt

I asked about reporting an attempt to access our computing system:

> An attempt was made this morning to exploit a rather well known
> bug to gain access to our business computing platform from an
> account at a remote (and unrelated) site.
> I have already contacted postmaster & root at the involved sites,
> but have not yet received a response.
> Does protocol or conventional wisdom suggest reporting this attempt
> elsewhere?
Although the vulnerability was reported by the CERT advisory CA-93:16
of November 4, 1993, and the attempt was unsuccessful, the consensus
suggests reporting the attempt back to I will.
