SubjectRe: kernel bug -> security problem
Date
Gary Schrock was heard saying ....
# And, apparently, not everyone is affected. I just went from 2.0.22 to
# 2.0.23 and still do not seem to have that bug:
#
# I'll attach my .config file for my linux kernel so that if anyone wants to
# look through it to see what's different between my configuration that

# # CONFIG_FIREWALL is not set
# # CONFIG_NET_ALIAS is not set
# CONFIG_INET=3Dy
# # CONFIG_IP_FORWARD is not set
# # CONFIG_IP_MULTICAST is not set
# # CONFIG_IP_ACCT is not set
#

My configuration is almost identical to this one (and I suffered from
the bug) except for IP_FORWARD which I have enabled. Is there /ANY/
chance that might have something to do with it? (I'm pulling at
straws, here, I know).

What about everyone else? If you are affected by this bug, do you have
IP_FORWARD enabled?


N!
