Subject: CVE request: setrlimit can be avoided (Linux less than 2.6.22)


This rlimit-avoiding bug probably needs a CVE associated with it.  Users
could avoid RLIMIT_CPU by setting it to "0".  The fixes in 2.6.17 did
not actually fix the problem.


Fixed in 2.6.22:;a=commitdiff;h=9926e4c74300c4b31dee007298c6475d33369df0
