    Default 'Critical' Linux kernel bugs discovered

    I have no idea if this has been posted before, sorry if it has.
    And another note, I'm not sure about the rules of this sub-forum so hopefully I'm not doing anything wrong :b .

    But some critical security issue has been discovered that exists in
    the Linux kernel 2.6.24.1.
    Here is the article:

    Researcher behind Linux Kernel flaw explains motives

    Secunia disagreed about the bugs' seriousness, giving them a less critical ranking.

    Exploit code for the vulnerabilities has been released publicly on the hacker site milw0rm.com, and Core Security Technologies has also developed a commercial exploit for the bugs, researchers said.

    I have had enough of being flammed by a bunch of wannaby hackers, I have found a security forum that wont flame you when you ask questions, they even make you a video tutorial to show you how do do things.

    I recon ALL newbies should take a look at this link

    www.google.com

    you wont be disapointed.

    Hehehe, you have to really wonder sometimes.

    You're running a livecd. Who is going to hack you? And even on the small chance they do exploit you, all you have to do is reboot.

    Absolutely no worries.

    You do realize that A) not everyone is running BT of the live-cd B) As long as you have your system up and running they could possibly have access to all the data on your computer C) The weakness was related to the kernel and not BT as an OS itself.

    But as shamanvirtuel states, the patch for this particular flaw was released just one day after the exploit came to public knowledge, as often is the case.

    You expected something different? This is the Linux community not Microslop.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
