Hi,
aptosid KDE4.4.5 32 refuses to wake from sleep requiring a reset, which worse can log straight in without a password.
This is on an AMD 64 duo nvidia 4g ram Gigabyte MB desktop.
The KVM module is still absent showing old sidux is still there.

I am curious why a good name like sidux was dropped, and all the user data evaporated as well.
Nothing as constant as change yet things remain the same someone said

oztiks writes with this excerpt from The H: "A vulnerability in the 32-bit compatibility mode of the current Linux kernel (and previous versions) for 64-bit systems can be exploited to escalate privileges. For instance, attackers can break into a system and exploit a hole in the web server to get complete root (also known as superuser) rights or permissions for a victim's system. According to a report, the problem occurs because the 32-bit call emulation layer does not check whether the call is truly in the Syscall table. Ben Hawkes, who discovered the problem, says the vulnerability can be exploited to execute arbitrary code with kernel rights. ... Hawkes says the vulnerability was discovered and remedied back in 2007, but at some point in 2008 kernel developers apparently removed the patch, reintroducing the vulnerability. The older exploit apparently only needed slight modifications to work with the new hole."
Maybe slh already knows about this one?
