Is there a Security Hole if CUBIC is used? Should I be really scared?
Will I bring down the entire Internet? If I'm willing to take a risk
myself (running Fedora is a moderate risk, like opening up the case on
your PC and installing a new memory card) why should anyone worry about
me needing to be bailed out?
I'm honestly curious. Since I build my own kernels every day, I could
just turn CUBIC off. But I figure that exercising it a bit in the
*real* world is probably good.
Is that any different than running CUBIC between PlanetLab nodes and
users on PCs in academic computer networking research labs?
