ipv6 only. also appears to be fixed. so remember, as with all kernel

increases.

nice to know there was a 0-day fix.

Rather than a "Ok, so what? We'll fix it in three weeks." day fix?

With his 36 years experience on computing, he *knows* that Linux is just a
script kiddie OS for a tiny minority of computer users.
