Submission + - Plan9 kernel exploit made public

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."

The meat is rotten, but the booze is holding out. Computer translation of "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
