Description Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2009-02-27 21:57:03 UTC
CVE-2009-0028 (
  The clone system call in the Linux kernel 2.6.28 and earlier allows
  local users to send arbitrary signals to a parent process from an
  unprivileged child process by launching an additional child process
  with the CLONE_PARENT flag, and then letting this new process exit.
