Description Mark J. Cox 2005-01-11 15:42:29 UTC
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;


Comment 1 Ernie Petrides 2005-01-12 21:06:48 UTC
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
