    Default Linux kernel flaw


    I just read about this today:

    Several versions of Linux from multiple vendors are reportedly vulnerable to a flaw in the Linux 2.4 kernel. According to the initial report from Secunia, the threat is related to a problem in the way the Linux kernel caches routing information, which can cause hash collisions and crash the system

    So?

    Doubtless there will be a fix coming very quickly. Noone claims that there are no bugs in Linux, even in the kernel. But once they are found and fixed, they stay fixed, through following releases.

    I would guess that this bug doesn't affect many people. If it did, it wouldn't be there.
