Gmane
From: Chris Wright <chrisw <at> sous-sol.org>
Subject: Linux 2.6.19.1
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Monday 11th December 2006 21:25:00 UTC (over 9 years ago)
We (the -stable team) are announcing the release of the 2.6.19.1 kernel.
It's an assortment of fixes with a couple security related:

a526d58e: do_coredump() and not stopping rewrite attacks? (CVE-2006-6304)
ad8ca99c: TOKENRING: Remote memory corruptor in ibmtr.c

The diffstat and short summary of the fixes are below.

I'll also be replying to this message with a copy of the patch between
2.6.19 and 2.6.19.1, as it is small enough to do so.
                                                                           
    
The updated 2.6.19.y git tree can be found at:                             
    
        git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.19.y.git

and can be browsed at the normal kernel.org git web browser:               
    
        www.kernel.org/git/                                                
    

thanks,
-chris
