RedHat Patches for AMD64
Posted on: 01/20/2004 07:09 PM

David emailed me about a few updates that RedHat recently announced that affect its AMD64 support.
On AMD64 systems, a fix was made to the eflags checking in 32-bit ptrace emulation that could have allowed local users to elevate their privileges.

AMD64 kernels are now configured with NUMA support...
If you're down with RedHate, take a look.
