LXer: Linux Users Face Risk From Kernel Vulnerability

Published at LXer:

The Linux kernel has potentially been at risk from a flaw that has been present in Linux since 2003, according to a new finding from security researcher Invisible Things Lab. And while the flaw has now been patched in the mainline Linux kernel, it's not clear yet if all Linux distros have implemented the patch -- potentially leaving them open to exploitation by attackers.
