Users could avoid RLIMIT_CPU by setting it to "0". The fixes in 2.6.17 did not actually fix the problem. Bugs: https://launchpad.net/bugs/107209 http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=419706 Fixed in 2.6.22: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commitdiff;h=9926e4c74300c4b31dee007298c6475d33369df0 Thanks, -Kees -- Kees Cook Ubuntu Security Team
