Yet another kernel upgrade.

Fri Nov 15 18:30:16 PST 2002 — Yet another kernel upgrade. It turns out that Wednesday’s kernel upgrades weren’t enough to combat the kernel bug. A new program was released about an hour ago on Bugtraq that was far more tenacious about killing a server. Fortunately, Linus Torvalds himself posted a kernel patch to the linux-kernel mailing list, which we applied to all vulnerable servers. Those servers are now no longer vulnerable. We don’t expect another problem with this security bug. -Scott
