[COLOR=#1951B9]Security researchers have discovered a potentialy serious security vulnerability within a Linux kernel memory management module. [/COLOR]

[COLOR=#1951B9]At risk this time around are versions of the Linux kernel from 2.2 up to and including 2.2.25; 2.4 up to and including 2.4.24; 2.6 up to and including 2.6.2. [/COLOR]

[COLOR=#1951B9]Exploitation of the latest flaw is straightforward, according to Polish white hat hackers iSec, which unearthed both problems. But don't get too alarmed - there's no evidence that the vuln has been used in anger. [/COLOR]

The vuln is not remotely executable, which leads me to believe that its probably the sort of thing thats destined to become a "gain root access floppy" of some sort. But then you never know what sick little minds are plotting in the dark.
