Hello all,

 

I was wondering if someone can point me to some article about the way Checkpoint uses the Linux kernel. Kernel 3.10 is presented as something new, however it was released in june 2013 and declared EOL in 2017, no patches for security vulnerabilities are created anymore by the kernel community. I expect Checkpoint modifies the code heavily, but still, vulnerabilities are detected all the time, and how do they keep up with reality?

 

Regards
