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;

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).
The fix for this problem has also been committed to the RHEL3 U5
