Ralf Flax, SUSE’s vice president of engineering, said that the survey findings speak “very positively about the level of trust and confidence that enterprises have in OpenStack.” The survey also shows there are still concerns of enterprises about how they should integrate or manage their clouds.
Research team finds bug in Linux Kernel
Perception Point’s Research team has identified a zero-day local privilege escalation vulnerability in the Linux kernel. The team said that the vulnerability has implications for tens of millions of Linux PCs and servers, and 66% of all Android devices, including phones and tablets.
Perception Point did not see any exploit targeting this vulnerability in the wild, but it is recommending that security teams examine potentially affected devices and implement patches “as soon as possible.”
The bug itself can cause a memory leak, and the research team found that it is caused by a reference leak in the keyring facility, which is a way for drivers to retain or cache security data, encryption keys, and other data in the kernel. More information on this bug can be found on the team’s research page.
