what's happening Linbros? Linux is full of exploits how did we let this happen?

wtf...
>>
haha its open source dude, just audit the code yourself lmao
>>
>>60409826
welcome to the world, every software is full of exploits
>>
>>60409826
Windows has more
>>
>>60409826
linux is, windows is, macos is, nothing special, welcome to the real world
>>
Much fewer users therefore much smaller chance of someone bothering to attack it. That's really all there is to it
>>
>literally all except the top one are Android
>>
This just shows that things actually get fixed. More bugs patched == better security.
>>
>>60410452
Yes, which uses the insecure shitnux kernel
>>
>>60410477
Android doesn't use the Linux kernel retard.
>>
>>60410477
> being this stupid
>>
>>60410477
Don't worry the fact that those exploit works on a specific driver which is potentially a blob.
Nexus fixed under a few days, so stop shitposting or write write malware for it if you have brain for that.
>>
>>60410613
Yes it does, faggot. type uname in a shitnux terminal emu. on android right now.
>>
>>60410408
Most servers that have user data run on Linux. So the argument fewer users is incorrect.

Nine of those are Android/Kernel-3.10/3.18 and one is maybe DoS of an old version of an obscure filesystem that no one uses.

You can thank "engineers" from Sun for that pile of shit.

>Android
Oh wow! Using old-ass kernel with a pile of backported shit on top leads to vulnerabilities! No way dude!
Send a thank you note to Google "engineers".
>>
>>60409826
Most of these are mistakes of the past are comming back to bite linux in the ass.
Either that or hackers decided windows was too easy of a target.
But really as long as one does not use much software outside official repos he should be fine.

Android screws this stats in the ass.

How did dirtycow work on both phones and desktops then?

That's what happens when you let kiddos play with Kali
>>
>>60414366
*some* exploits work on both GNU/Linux and Android but that does NOT mean all exploits work on both
>>
>>60409826
This is what happens when your software gets more popular.

You can thank Android for all those Linux exploits.
>>
>>60414436
You just said
>they think Android exploits can affect desktops and servers
Which sarcastically implies they can't
Now you're saying some can?
>>
>>60410739
I think it would be better to say that android uses a modified version of the linux kernel.
>>
>>60414672
Well in this case the site says what products it affects and it only affects Android. So the fact that some exploits can affect Android and stock Linux kernels is immaterial.
>>
>>60409826
looks like they were found y kernel developers, so it only proves that linux is superior
>>
>>60414763
Ubuntu uses a modified version of the linux kernel, as does Fedora. Huuuuuurrrrrrr
Android uses the shitnux kernel, deal with it.
>>
>>60414763
>>60415254
In case i'm not being clear, what I'm saying is that Faggotbuntu, Fedora, and Lagdroid all use modified versions of the shitnux kernel. It's still shitnux.

It's probably from Googles fuzz a thon, which I think is great.

How many people do you know run some kind of Linux OS on their desktop? Now how many people do you know run Windows? That's the point you retard.

There's a reason why people turn that shit off.

I guess all the eyeballs are furiously masturbating instead of swallowing all the bugs.

There hasn't been an Windows since ME that you couldn't configure that.

If you can not contribute something constructive, stay calm. The whole "tfw no gf" thing is a corporate meme trying to destroy open source. How much did Microsoft pay for your Soul? How does it feel to divide a productive community of hobbyists and communists who do not talk about giving the means of production back to the population, but actually do it? As history progresses, you will soon realize that you are the thought police George Orwell forsaw, the Waffen-SS of corporate America.

Why is that the point? What makes personal computers more desirable to attackers than servers? Come on. I wanna hear your stupidity.
