+ - Ext4 scare was a tempest in a teacup: almost all of the userbase safe->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "It turns out the ext4 problem only affects users of some very obscure mount options, and even them it depends on specific conditions to show up. If you DON'T use the mount options "journal_async_commit" or "journal_checksum", which are NEVER enabled by default (not by the system, and not by the distros), you will not see any corruption."
