Remote buffer overflow bug in kernel

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

 



Dear all,

There has been a bug in the kernel with a buffer overflow in kernel, 

\begin{quote}
A remote buffer overflow vulnerability in the Linux Kernel could be exploited by attackers to execute code or cripple affected systems, according to a Gentoo bug report that just became public.

The flaw could allow malicious hackers to launch arbitrary code with kernel-level privileges.  This could lead to complete system compromise or, in some cases if an exploit fails, result in denial-of-service attacks.

Q:  Will we see an updated kernel soon that addresses this issue?

Is it a real bug or just on Gentoo?  


Thanks,

Antonio
