Re: [PLUG] kernel bug - gain root priv


Thanks for the tip!  I especially appreciate your summary of the
problem.  Saying "could allow local attackers" is VERY useful to
me.  For servers where I'm the only local user, I don't have to
worry about this one.

Interesting reading in any case.

15-year-old Linux kernel bugs let attackers gain root privileges

Three vulnerabilities found in the iSCSI subsystem of the Linux kernel could allow local attackers with basic user privileges to gain root privileges on unpatched Linux systems. ___________________________________________________________________________
