Linux 6.5 Released30 Aug 2023 tags: audit selinux
Linux v6.5 was released on Sunday, August 27th. I already wrote up a post highlighting the SELinux and audit changes that were submitted during the merge window, but there was one minor change worth mentioning that occurred during the release candidate process, it’s described below.
- A small fix to ensure that an internal data structure is properly initialized before use. Prior to this fix an error condition when loading the SELinux policy had the potential to result in a memory fault caused by walking off the end of a linked list.
