I have just seen the message from Marcus about the local root exploit in
Linux kernel (CVE-2006-2451). He doesn't give a workround, but I imagine
that putting

* hard core 0

in /etc/security/limits.conf would be pretty effective (although it
doesn't catch people already logged on). Is that correct?

Bob
