University banned from kernel development after professor and students repeatedly intentionally introduce security vulnerabilities into the Linux kernel.
Then they pull the inclusivity card when they're called out on it.
If you were wondering why Microsoft and all the rest are *really* big on Codes of Conduct and other shit that enables this sort of attack....
good fucking lord, look at the mess they made
As of this post, the latest kernel changelog doesn't show any of these reverts. They'll likely hit today or tomorrow. Until then, this is essentially a list of active Linux 0days.
Some of these will likely be very low hanging fruit for attackers. As soon as reverts drop, you should patch your shit immediately.
@r000t GNU is Lefties. Lefties want tracing for command and control. Microsoft is Lefties. Linux is Lefties. Apple is Lefties.
Whatcha gonna do, Alfie?
"Intimidating to newbies and non-experts" - Good. Submitting fucking kernel patches should not be the place for newbies and non-experts.
"seem to be unrepentant"
Funny how that works. Just like how we sinners are toward God.
It helps to establish a relationship with the developer & code that was written; Jesus & the Bible :)
