New Linux Kernel Patched
The first Linux kernel of the year gets a point upgrade as work continues on the next version.
Security firm Secunia has rated the three vulnerabilities as ''moderately critical''; the potential impact could be a Denial of Service (DoS) attack against a vulnerable system.
The first vulnerability, CVE-2006-0035, describes a flaw that could trigger an infinite loop that a malicious user could potentially exploit as a DoS attack.
A patch for CVE-2006-0036, the second vulnerability, fixes a crash in ip_nat_pptp.
