New kernel exploit & Linode - DON'T TRY IT!
new kernel exploit
I just tried the exploit code on the Linode to see if it was vulnerable. It doesn't give me a root login, but it does hang the "machine", pretty hard, too. Took a few minutes for the Lish-initiated reboot to take effect; I thought I was going to have to fill a support ticket.
Best case scenario seems to be a graceless shutdown, so I would have to stamp it Not Recommended.
how can I upgrade to the latest 188.8.131.52 ,without recompiling myself the kernel ?
