Hi,

Well, there's a new kernel and a new patch, available at:

	http://www.openwall.com/linux/

Compared to 2.2.19-ow3 or 2.2.19-ow4, Linux 2.2.20 adds a workaround
for a vulnerability with certain packet filter setups and SYN cookies
(see http://cr.yp.to/syncookies.html) where the packet filter rules
could be bypassed.

Additionally, 2.2.20-ow1 moves even more of the support for combined
ELF/a.out setups (in particular, uselib(2) and its related a.out
library loaders) under the configuration option introduced with
2.2.19-ow4.
