The latest Linux Kernel ‘sock_sendpage()’ NULL Pointer Dereference Vulnerability did not spare BackTrack 4 either. We’ve taken this opportunity to upgrade the BackTrack 4 kernel and include the required security patch.
The patched kernel source and image can be downloaded here :
BackTrack 4 Kernel Image (18.104.22.168) BackTrack 4 Kernel Source (22.214.171.124) *Links removed*
The repositories will be updated soon, to include additional drivers compiled against this kernel.
Once we are done with testing, a complete upgrade howto will be posted, hang in there!
