Security Vulnerability with Kernel 2.6.24.1?

After catching site of a story on SANS – see this link – and reading the linked articles, I could not tell if kernel version 2.6.24.1 was vulnerable or not – the wording is a little ambiguous. Reading the changelog for 2.6.24.2 indicated a fix for a pointer issue, which *looks* related to the problem affecting all kernels prior to (and possibly including, I cannot tell) 2.6.24.1. I am tired and not too bright today, so I just gave in and updated to 2.6.24.2 as a “just in case”.

Of course, this means reinstalling the nvidia driver and reapplying vmware-any-any-update115a. Oh well.

Update:  Tag Surfer fed this blog up on the same thing.
