Indeed it is. I haven't been able to make it actually work though. The exploit forks off some threads, eats LOTS of memory, uses a lot of cpu power, and then fails. Again and again.

The exploit does seem to fork off one more thread each time it is run, so it must be doing something to the kernel memory.

However, this exploit won't go unnoticed on your machine. Just watch for huge load spikes.
