from the bumm dept.
As described on Symlink, a local DOS exploit exists in the Linux Kernel. We will reboot our mail-, web- and software-servers on Wednesday in the early morning.
A complete description is available in the Linux Kernel Mailing List and a patch in the Bitkeeper archive.
Our workstations will get a new kernel ASAP. We will keep you informed on this site and recommend you to avoid long running jobs in the next days.
