Hi,

the 3.5.0-* kernels from lemote [1] are vulnerable to CVE-2014-0196 [2],
which makes them somewhat unusable on multi-user systems (if you don't
trust all of your users).

AFAIU this patch [3] should fix the issue for 3.5.0. I just put a
debian package with a fixed kernel here [4] (only 3.5.0-9.lemote-dk1 or
newer, untested, YMMV etc.)

cheers,

David
