Mac Developer: Patch alert! Easy-to-exploit flaw in Linux kernel rated 'high risk' • The Register
Patch alert! Easy-to-exploit flaw in Linux kernel rated 'high risk' • The Register: "If a malicious program is built as a Position Independent Executable (PIE), the loader can be exploited to map part of that application's data segment over the memory area reserved for its stack. This can result in memory corruption and possible local privilege escalation."
It's a lot of surface to keep secure.
