Slackwarearm-14.2 ChangeLog (2016-10-24)

Mon Oct 24 17:18:19 UTC 2016

  • patches/packages/linux-4.4.27/*
    A race condition was found in the way the Linux kernel's memory subsystem
    handled the copy-on-write (COW) breakage of private read-only memory mappings.
    An unprivileged local user could use this flaw to gain write access to
    otherwise read-only memory mappings and thus increase their privileges on
    the system.
    For more information, see:

    (* Security fix *)
