is there a patch for kernel flaw found in Debian
 
Hello All:

I'm using RH 7.3, and want to know if there's a patch for the security flaw found in the linux kernel by a Debian crew (because they were hacked).

If so where is it?

Thanks,

What's your kernel?

# Find running kernel version
uname -r

[SECURITY] [DSA-403-1] userland can access Linux kernel memory

kernel 2.4.18

I believe that is the vulnurable kernel.

I would advise you to upgrade to kernel version 2.4.20-20.7
