Summary
-------

Due to a recently discovered security problem, the ptrace kernel
interface had to be disabled temporarily on the login cluster
llc*.psi.ch.

This means that debuggers and similar tools, e.g. gdb and strace, will
not work on the login cluster for the time being.


Schedule
--------

The change has been implemented already. It will be rolled back once a
kernel patch for Scientifc Linux is available and the login cluster has
been rebooted. This is likely to take at least a few days.
