>A zero-day vulnerability in the Linux kernel has left “tens of millions” of Linux PCs and servers exposed, along with 66 percent of Android phones and tablets. And it’s been there for nearly three years...can ultimately allow an attacker to pose as a local user and gain root access to a device.
>Two flaws were found in the way the Linux kernel's networking
implementation handled UDP packets with incorrect checksum values. A remote
attacker could potentially use these flaws to trigger an infinite loop in
the kernel, resulting in a denial of service on the system, or cause a
denial of service in applications using the edge triggered epoll
functionality. (CVE-2015-5364, CVE-2015-5366, Important)
>denial of service
How is that gaining root access you fucking moron?
>Vulnerability found by devs in linux
Fixed in 1 hour, updating takes 5 minutes
>Vulnerability found in Windows
Takes months to be fixed by microshit, some 0days are still there with no reaction from ms
