+ - Linux kernel team not disclosing security flaws?-> 1

iphone-deals writes ""The following email was sent to the full disclosure mailing list today by Brad Spengler, the author of GRSecurity. "The kernel was released with no mention of security vulnerabilities in the announcement, only "assorted bugfixes". Put simply, it only took about an hour or so to develop a PoC for this exploitable vulnerability which affects 64bit x86_64 kernels since January. So since the time of the fix itself (or even before that if someone spotted it before the kernel developers did themselves) users have been at risk. ""
