    Only serious if you use iSCSI which the majority of Linux users
    don't, sure the impact could be bad if your cloud service used iSCSI >>>>>> instead of distributed storage.

    The effect of the bugs are far smaller than the ms-exchange bug
    recently found.

    From the web page:
    "The researchers were able to find software that an unprivileged
    attacker could run in order to activate the buggy driver code they’d >>>>> found, and they were able to produce working exploits"

    The point is that iscsi is rarely used. It has no impact on systems
    that do not use iscsi (internet scsi). MS exchange is used on almost
    all servers using windows.

    No idea why MS exchange is coming in here

    LOL...Really?

    I see it as the same thing as Trumpers, whenever you talk about things
    he'd done that you don't like....and have verified facts and information
    to completely support your view on it, and they'll be all...

    "...bu, bu, bu, bu..what about Hillary?!?!"

    I STILL hear this, even after Biden was sworn in.

    Trump is biggest idiot any political party every advanced to the Presidency. Biden is a man who started running for president before you
    were hatched. He knows more about the job than anyone since Truman and Franklin Roosevelt. Sadly we will never experience the leadership of
    Hillary Clinton but she could not have done worse than Trump and likely
    would have done much better without sacrificing our honor to enrich
    herself as Mr. Trump did over and over again.

    Soon he will be in court discussing his mistreatment of
    young women.
