Parent article: vmsplice(): the making of a local root exploit

For those of you running Slackware. The ChangeLog for Slackware-current shows that there are now updated kernel packages, that fix this problem, available.

Mon Feb 11 17:47:58 CST 2008
a/kernel-generic-2.6.23.16-i486-1.tgz:
       Upgraded to Linux 2.6.23.16 uniprocessor generic.s (requires initrd) kernel.
       All of these kernel upgrades fix yesterday's local root exploit.
       The kernel headers did not change, so a glibc rebuild is not required.
       For more information, see:
       http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-0010
       http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-0163
       http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-0600
       (* Security fix *)
       If you use lilo, don't forget to run it again after the upgrade.
