CVE-2016-0728

Linux bug imperils tens of millions of PCs, servers, and Android phones
Vulnerability allows restricted users and apps to gain unfettered root access.

For almost three years, millions of servers and smaller devices running Linux have been vulnerable to attacks that allow an unprivileged app or user to gain nearly unfettered root access. Major Linux distributors are expected to fix the privilege escalation bug this week, but the difficulty of releasing updates for Android handsets and embedded devices means many people may remain susceptible for months or years.

The flaw, which was introduced into the Linux kernel in version 3.8 released in early 2013, resides in the OS keyring. The facility allows apps to store encryption keys, authentication tokens, and other sensitive security data inside the kernel while remaining in a form that can't be accessed by other apps.

>muh security meme

The Perception Point Research team has identified a 0-day local privilege escalation vulnerability in the Linux kernel. While the vulnerability has existed since 2012, our team discovered the vulnerability only recently, disclosed the details to the Kernel security team, and later developed a proof-of-concept exploit. As of the date of disclosure, this vulnerability has implications for approximately tens of millions of Linux PCs and servers, and 66 percent of all Android devices (phones/tablets). While neither us nor the Kernel security team have observed any exploit targeting this vulnerability in the wild, we recommend that security teams examine potentially affected devices and implement patches as soon as possible.

That's like saying that the athletic, fit guy is "unhealthy" because he came down with a flu and then fought it off while you cram KFC and shit down your throat and sit around watching TV all day with no regards for what you're doing to your body.

In all likelihood, your body is significantly less healthy than his even when he had the flu, and you're a hell of a lot more vulnerable.

didn't Windows have a vulnerability where one could gain admin access by having the user open a .doc file

But hey, sure, Windows is great. I love my botnet OS.

Wrong board, dumb frogposter. If you can't trouble yourself to post a /g/-related image, then don't bother at all. Go meme your ebin well-meme'd memes on /b/ where that garbage belongs.

It just sits there using 100% CPU

Linux is useless. How is that basement treating you? There are people who have work to do. Linux security is a meme and theres nothing to be afraid of since you cant do anything important with linux, so there isnt anything worth stealing.

I love how it can simultaneously be the case that linux security vulnerabilities are a big deal and that no-one uses linux for anything important.

One or the other, retard, not both.

Tell that to all the android phones, embedded devices, servers and workstations running it

Last time I checked, only madmen ran webservers with anything other than linux

Meanwhile, zero days on Wang blows are never publicized. Just quietly patched, and the turd at Microsoft who found it gets a pat on the back.

Unless google finds it first.

Kek, the only security difference between Android and the other mobile OS is that you can be certain that your device is riddled with security holes, not only suspect it.

This is why we need GNU Hurd to develop faster or some other alternative to this hideous blob of kernel created by a freedom hating fag.

Let's face it, his kernel is open source only to get people to work for him for free, he hates free software.

There are other options like gnu / kfreebsd (Debian distro) using the FreeBSD kernel.

idk think outside the box. A suitable Linux replacement is obviously going to take many years of work.

in just a minute is easy to find a privilege escalation bug for all windows.

(The one posted by OP doesn't work if something like SELinux is present)

But on windows this are not even news.

Not a problem if you have SELinux or AppArmor.
