My compliments for the fast response for this exploit. I have just one question left about this exploit: I have just executed the proof-of-concept code (http://www.milw0rm.com/exploits/5092) again with the updated kernel. Is there no memory corruption at all with this new kernel version?
Or should I reboot my pc after running the proof-of-concept) just for sure?
Thanks.
