lammert - It actually wasn't terribly silent nor hard to spot. Ubuntu this morning offered me "Important security updates", and clicking the Details button showed there were several kernel fixes to stack memory handling. That sounds like the bug which was described.
Of course, with Windows we'd be waiting for a corporation to consider blessing us with a fix because there's no stable option for users to contribute and distribute fixes.
