-stable: Linux

Jul 17, 2006, 13:45 (0 Talkback[s])

We (the -stable team) are announcing the release of the kernel.

This should fix the reported issue of NetworkManager dying when using the kernel release. All users of the 2.6.16 kernel are recommended to upgrade to this kernel, as it fixes a publicly known security issue that can provide root access to any local user of the machine.

I'll also be replying to this message with a copy of the patch between and, as it is small enough to do so.

The updated 2.6.16.y git tree can be found at:
       git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.16.y.git and can be browsed at the normal kernel.org git web browser:
