Linus Torvalds warns: Watch out for this unusually nasty bug in Linux 5.12 rc1

Linus Torvalds has warned of a nasty security bug in the first release candidate (RC) of the Linux kernel 5.12, which he has deemed a "double ungood" that can have catastrophic consequences for a computer's filesystem.

Linus Torvalds has issued a warning to open-source developers to avoid the first release candidate (RC) of the Linux kernel 5.12. 

Linux kernel 5.12 was released on time despite the snow storms that lashed Oregon and knocked out power to Torvalds' home for the better part of a week. Torvalds and his thousands of contributors managed to get version 5.12 out on time, but he now says RC 5.12 is a "double ungood" that can have catastrophic consequences for a computer's filesystem.
