Recently a new Linux Kernel vulnerability has been detected. The person who found the exploit will reveal the exploit code at the end of July.
This Exploit allows hackers to intrude Linux Systems with elevated privileges, known as StackRot.
Vulnerable Kernels are currently 6.1.x - 6.4.x
Hope there will be quick solutions here for endeavour…
I reported this vulnerability to the Linux kernel security team on June 15th. Following that, the process of addressing this bug was led by Linus Torvalds. Given its complexity, it took nearly two weeks to develop a set of patches that received consensus.
On June 28th, during the merge window for Linux kernel 6.5, the fix was merged into Linus’ tree. Linus provided a comprehensive merge message to elucidate the patch series from a technical perspective.
These patches were subsequently backported to stable kernels (6.1.37, 6.3.11, and 6.4.1), effectively resolving the “Stack Rot” bug on July 1st.
