Re: Remote buffer overflow bug in kernel

They should be concerned anyway. The ndiswrapper code does not play nicely with 4k kernel mode stacks which have been the standard on Fedora kernels for years now.

Windows NDIS drivers expect to have up to 12k of stack available to them and anyone who crowbars ndiswrapper into a standard Fedora kernel is asking for it to randomly blow up in their face.
