In October 2016, a privilege escalation vulnerability was discovered in the Linux kernel. It has been given the name "Dirty Cow" and assigned a Common Vulnerability and Exposures (CVE) number CVE-2016-5195.
This module checks your running kernel to determine if it is vulnerable to Dirty Cow. A puppet notice is logged if it is vulnerable.
