FreeBSD crushes system-crashing bug


Re: Friday afternoon, is it?

While clumsy, it is grammatically correct. I suspect what has you flummoxed is the last part, which sounds like it should end after the word "kernel". The integer signedness fault, however, doesn't cause a heap overflow in the kernel, it makes the kernel VULNERABLE to a heap overflow.

Clear as mud.
