Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2005-01-11 10:42:29 EST
CAN-2004-1074 fixes a flaw allowing a malicious binary to crash a system.  It
was found that a similar flaw also affected 64-bit ELF support, therefore
affecting ia64, x86_64, and s390 support.  

Fixed upstream in 2.6;

Josh, it's the pool maintainer's job to transition bugs to MODIFIED state.
Since the fix is not yet committed to CVS, I'm reverting this to ASSIGNED.

A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 E5
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-27.0.2.EL).
