kernel & security

Hi, I would like to know if there is somewhere a website that tell if a version of a kernel is vulnerable from an attack ?


How about:

Spectre/Meltdown: kernel "fixes" and other mitigation's have NOT
landed for 32bit ARM...

Besides, the Kernel isn't the easiest to bypass..

Did you give root a password?
Did you change root's default password?

Side note:

the old 3.8.13 based kernel is vulnerable to lots of stuff.. :wink:


Just landed in git:


Which attack?

Any idea who we can nudge to try and get the patch backported to the long term kernels? Greg Kroah-Hartman says that there hasn’t been any backporting word done yet


What’s stopping you?
