Surely they would need my password to gain access? Plus I’m not connected to anything with remote access. I’m not a server. Would they only be able to gain access whilst sat in front of my computer?
This report is not very clear, mostly computer jargon that I am unfamiliar with, especially the tables about how the security team going over the lines of code, which read as jargon to me. Is this vulnerability aimed more at servers? answer no it’s world wide, they were not clear enough of how the hacker would get into my computer, if my computer was going to be attacked??
I think it is going to be the norm from now on, if Linux is to keep up with today’s tech? The lines of code in the Kernel now, go way over Trillions and Trillions. The amount of man and woman hours spent writing or adding code to it, then having to get it passed to say it works, let alone finding any bugs, vulnerabilities. Plus I highly doubt that Linus Torvalds is happy about this? I watched this video of late, with news of what is going on in Linux, but do we take it as face value?
