Hi,

Two serious Linux kernel vulnerabilities have just been announced
(information leak in sysctl(2) on Linux 2.2, and a race condition in
execve(2) on both 2.2 and 2.0).  Both can result in a local root
compromise.

I've released updated versions of the kernel patches which include
fixes for these vulnerabilities.  They can be downloaded at the usual
location:
