Time to Update – Now!

I can’t add anymore than wonderful Mackenzie already did:

A new kernel update just went out yesterday or the day before (not
sure), but it fixes the vmsplice proof-of-concept exploit that was
released two days ago. The exploit would allow someone at a non-root
console to elevate themself to root without using sudo or su or knowing
any passwords at all.
