Description Mark J. Cox 2005-02-16 13:52:45 UTC
Read the description of this issue at 
http://www.gelato.unsw.edu.au/linux-ia64/0409/11073.html

A patch for 2.6 was committed:
http://lia64.bkbits.net:8080/linux-ia64-release-2.6.11/cset@41f2d1eePludGYyb1yOmGaW6Iois8Q

Impact looks like it is a unprivileged DoS at least, possibly more.

Currently embargoed, no date set.

Comment 3 Mark J. Cox 2005-03-16 10:42:26 UTC
public, removing embargo
