No one has said anything about not fixing these bugs. The Linux USB developers have been spending a lot of time in the past weeks doing just that, so please do not think that is an issue here. Now the "mount a purposfully corrupted filesystem image" issues, that's another story :) CERT has a long-running thread with a number of kernel developers about issues they have found in that area over the past years, which has not lead to many fixes for various reasons :( thanks, greg k-h
