Hi,  Two serious Linux kernel vulnerabilities have just been announced (information leak in sysctl(2) on Linux 2.2, and a race condition in execve(2) on both 2.2 and 2.0).  Both can result in a local root compromise.  I've released updated versions of the kernel patches which include fixes for these vulnerabilities.
