This is not completely true. It depends on the type of signal:
synchronous signals (say, SIGSEGV or SIGFPE) are delivered to the
specific thread which generated the corresponding event while
asynchronous signals (say SIGTERM or SIGINT) are delivered to the
process which usually means the first non-blocking (or sigwait-blocking)
thread in the process whose signal mask does not block this signal from
being delivered.
