Subject: Re: COSEINC Linux Advisory #1: Linux Kernel Parent Process Death
 Signal Vulnerability


Small correction - I forgot to add setuid(0) ;)

 	PARENT		CHILD
 	----------------------------------------------------------------
 	fork()
 			prctl(PR_SET_PDEATHSIG)
 			execve("/bin/setuid-binary")
			setuid(0)
 	exit()'ed or killed
 			child receives NO signal this time
