Privilege escalation bug in Linux Kernel

... and how to deal with it right:

Bug filed and fixed on February 17, patches are already in circulation. Exploit will be made available in some days to allow the administrators to update.

The fix was just a two-liner but still: Fixed-on-the-same-day-as-filed. That's how it should work 🙂

And in the Windows world we still have unpatched Zero-day exploits, after three months of responsible disclosure. THREE MONTHS!! STILL UNPATCHED!!
