NethServer 6.x + 7 and DirtyCow

NethServer Version: 6.x and 7
Module: OS

I assume that NethServer 6.8 will be patched by the upstream repos in due course?

Or is some extra work required for this?

Good catch!
Patched upstream (CVE-2016-5195):

Install updates and reboot.


Should the updates come through automatically? Or is it a manual patch?

Just answered my own question - performed a “yum update” and the new kernel in question is now installing

Thanks for the help!
