Thanks. -- JB ----- Original Message ----- > Reported by Timo Warns, "The kernel automatically evaluates partition > tables of storage devices. The code for evaluating LDM partitions (in > fs/partitions/ldm.c) contains a bug that causes a kernel oops on > certain > corrupted LDM partitions. A kernel subsystem seems to crash, because, > after the oops, the kernel no longer recognizes newly connected > storage > devices." > > http://www.spinics.net/lists/mm-commits/msg82429.html > > This should affect kernels version v2.6.27-rc1 and above. Of course, > CONFIG_LDM_PARTITION needs to be set. > > Thanks, Eugene > -- > Eugene Teo / Red Hat Security Response Team
