Re: [SECURITY] [DSA-403-1] userland can access Linux kernel memory

Just a humble question: how the average user who doesn't use the
kernel sources provided by Debian and cannot follow lk should have
known about the bug?  The changelog read ``Add TASK_SIZE check to
do_brk()'', there's no indication that it's a security fix.

I'm really curious how you cope with it.
