Linux Kernel Exploit

Postby lexon » Wed Sep 22, 2010 2:34 pm ... sabackdoor

Seems to affect only 64 bit systems. Might be old news, rehashed.

Good article near the bottom of the page. Probably most here are aware.

Fact or Fiction?

Lindows, Linspire, Freespire, Ubuntu, Mint 15 Cinnamon, Mint 16 XFCE, Mint 17 Cinnamon 64 bit. MInt 18 64 bit Cinnamon.

The kernel has been patched, and a fix came out last week for Ubuntu

In Debian, for Squeeze, I found this. ... -2010-3081
squeeze (security) 2.6.30-8squeeze1 vulnerable
squeeze, sid 2.6.32-23 fixed
