CVE-2014-4508 is a memory leak in the auditing subsystem in the kernel. On old 32 bit linux kernels that don't have  this memory leak turns out to be quite bad: you can trigger an out of memory condition that the system cannot recover from not matter how hard it tries. If you believe you have such a kernel, please get in touch with me directly. jch  Thanks to Dan Moulding for bringing this to our attention  554086d85e71 ("x86_32, entry: Do syscall exit work on badsys (CVE-2014-4508)") Download attachment "signature.asc" of type "application/pgp-signature" (269 bytes)
