A new Linux vulnerability has been just discovered, called CVE-2016-5195 or "Dirty Cow", and it has been lurking in the code for at least 9 years, so probably most or all the kernels released for the Zaurus are affected:

No, I also don't think older ROMs wo be fixed smile.gif What's important is that currently maintained and used distros are safe, such as Alarmz...
