Peebee and others,

Anyone using 5.1.x pre 5.1.11 you may want to upgrade ASAP, there is a Critical CVE out on it (CVE-2019-11478+), Multiple Linux and FreeBSD DoS Vulnerabilities, Security Vulnerability: TCP SACK Denial of Service attacks, and a few others.

Anyone that uses netflix, especially, should stop using it until you've upgraded (the tcp part of the problem was initially found by their internal systems apparently).

Today Peebee posted a 5.1.11 64 bit kernel & I posted a 4.14.127 64 bit kernel. Both give TCP_SACK mitigation & are Slacko64/ScPup64 compatible.

Following up ozsouth's post as peebee's 5.1.11 kernel package was difficult to locate. The link to it is from here, http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1029629#1029629. Click "Interim delta updates and newer kernels may be available".

The link to ozsouth's kernel package is on http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1030512#1030512
