Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2011-07-10 01:15:45 UTC
CVE-2011-2484 (
  The add_del_listener function in kernel/taskstats.c in the Linux kernel and earlier does not prevent multiple registrations of exit
  handlers, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory and
  CPU consumption), and bypass the OOM Killer, via a crafted application.

There are no longer any 2.x kernels available in the repository with the exception of sys-kernel/xbox-sources which is unsupported by security.
