Linux It's the end of the world. Again. According to some Linux developers and security researchers, a bug in the Linux kernel has just been uncovered that makes just about every distribution utilizing kernel 2.4 and 2.6 on just about all architectures since May of 2001 vulnerable to a certain kind of attack.

The problem is you think that *this* is the worst bug ever found.

It may be the worst bug found so far.

You don't know what you don't know. There could be plenty more egregious ones out there, ones that can rival Windows ones.

And there could be plenty more egregious ones in Windows that haven’t been discovered aswell.
Well done for making a non-point.
