A small bug in the Linux networking code has been found, and just as quickly patched. The
bug affects all Linux 2.2 kernels, and can be fixed by removing "kfree_skb(skb);" from around line 455 of
linux/net/ipv4/ip_options.c. Big thanks to Alan Cox on this one.
That's the thing about people who think they hate computers. What they
really hate is lousy programmers.
