+ - Plan9 kernel exploit made public

Submitted by
swehack
swehack writes "The month of February saw a very rare case of a kernel exploit for the plan9 operating system made public on the Dailydave mailing list. The author mentions how he kindly waited for Bell Labs to patch the vulnerability but also that the exploit lasted quite a while in private use. One can only speculate what one would do with a private plan9 kernel exploit."

"Most of us, when all is said and done, like what we like and make up reasons for it afterwards." -- Soren F. Petersen
