Linux Kernel Multiple Prior to 126.96.36.199 Multiple Memory Access Vulnerabilities
Last modified: 2008-02-10 15:52:20 EST
The Linux kernel is prone to multiple memory access vulnerabilities, including:
- A vulnerability that allows unauthorized users to read
- A vulnerability that allows unauthorized users to write to
An attacker can exploit these issues to read and write to
memory locations on the affected computer.
This issue affects Linux kernel versions prior to 188.8.131.52.
Tested on current Fedora kernel (184.108.40.206-115.fc8) and it give me root! Posted
