Sadly, this time around ... we (linux kernels) ... didn't fare too well.

Its not the vulnerablity that matters, but the availablity of fix in a short time!

it looks like these are fixed in the updated fedora 16 kernel

Linux localhost.localdomain 3.3.5-2.fc16.i686 #1 SMP Tue May 8 12:04:02 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

and with this mornings update

it seems like there have been a lot of kernel updates since I started using f16

I wonder about that Kernel 2.2 bug....

That is what, 11 years old?

ya its old, but people still use systems with it on there cause they do their one thing and dont screw up so they dont patch or upgrade, and this is to show HEY STUPID IT CAN BE CONTROLLED BY SOMEONE ELSE...but yet people will still just let it be on the open internet..

This week isn't looking any better:
Looks like X for F16 is affected.
