Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux-meta (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-image

I have recently stumbled on the net on an exploit that gives one root access if executed.
Here is the link to the source: http://www.milw0rm.com/exploits/5092
I have tested it on my system kubuntu gutsy, 32bit, all the latest updates installed. And it's working.
