Yet another mremap critical flaw?
 
I'm really having trouble telling them all apart, now. Is this another brand new flaw or the same as some previous alert? The date says March 1 so I'm inclined to think this one has not been reported on LQ, yet.

From reading it, it *looks* like it was the second already released one. I think the date may have been updated when the advisory was updated to include POC code.

Ahh, so hard to tell them apart these days :(

Easy if it's assigned a CVE CAN number, just check out the entry.
CAN-2004-0077 was reported on 2004/02/18.
It is the second mremap one.

Oops, you're right and I totally overlooked the CVE CAN. That'll teach me to read advisories at 2AM.

Ah, well, everyone his own choice of bedside mags :-]
