Hai List,

i'm realy scared about this words. I remember: the reason was a big hole
in the Linux Kernel, known since April. "Red Hat" has strongly recommend
to apply a patch to their Kernels!
I think, so many as possible linux users should know about this bug and
there is no secure solution for the SuSE Kernel!



friendly Regards


Andreas Wahlert

I agree... It seems like that there are not too many people
willing to
discuss such detailed and specialized matter in a mailing list
that is
bound to a distribution/a vendor. After all, all relevant
mailing lists
that deal with kernels, networking and discrete subsystems are
not
distribution-specialized, and sometimes I tend to believe that
the
discussions on distributor-hosted mailing lists are somewhat
emotional and
less rational. I'm very please to see that this is rarely the
case with
suse-security.

Anyway, I think you could meet people with the same questions
and fitting
answers at suse-linux-e@xxxxxxxxx The volume is not too high on
this list.

Thanks,
Roman.
