>From SuSE Linux Kernel YOU patch;
"AppArmor in SUSE Linux 10.0 and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 SP3 could
crash the machine by an negative dentry reference due to for instance
vanishing path component during a system call of a profiled application. -
Apparmor in SUSE Linux 10.0 and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 SP3 failed to
prevent PTRACE_ME on a confined parent, allowing an infected called program
to gain the same rights as its parent process. "
Since when Cowan and his groupies get anything right in the first try ?
(stackguard as being the prime example.)
So why clobber my dear Linux distro with such immature and unreliable
software ? Isn't there anyone in the SuSE team resisting to this ?
