Description brownld 1998-11-30 22:42:31 UTC
Information on this bug is not very clear.  What errata
release?  The error exists in 5.0.  I just ran this code
against processes on my machine, successfully killing root
owned processes, as a non-priviledged user.  I have updated
from the lastest glibc rpms (11/17/98).

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1998-12-01 03:37:59 UTC
It's not a glibc bug - the bug is in the kernel, and it's fixed in
the latest kernel errata for 4.2/5.0/5.1.
