This was handled via linux-distros, hence the mandatory oss-security

posting. The issue was made public earlier today, and is included in

this Debian advisory:


Pinkie Pie discovered an issue in the futex subsystem that allows a

local user to gain ring 0 control via the futex syscall. An

unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the kernel (resulting

in denial of service) or for privilege escalation.
