  2. notifying authors and maintainers about them.

27-Aug-2017: Finding bugs related to the memory errors in Linux kernel

Anton Vasilyev has finished Google Summer of Code 2017 project "Finding bugs related to the memory errors in Linux kernel" for The Linux Foundation.
Memory errors at the kernel of operation system are a kind of bugs that lead to grave consequences but are hard to detect. Debug and disclose of kernel memory corruptions often requires specially compiled kernel.
