Hi is there a fix issue for jolla for cve-2014-3153 ?

Was googling and found nothing about that ...

a explanaition in french : []

CVE-2014-3153 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.

According to the original message: "Possibly invited: Every Android phone with a kernel build date < Jun 3"

Jolla runs: Linux Jolla #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jun 6 16:05:20 UTC 2014 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux

Build-date is 6 jun, but the kernel date is "20140516"...

Currently someone with user access can use pkcon to gain root privileges, so fixing the issue mentioned by OP won't improve security.

This was fixed internally already a few days ago. So this will come in an update soon.
