Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2007-09-05 15:27:07 EDT
This flaw has been rated as having a low severity by the Red Hat
Security Response Team.  More information about this rating can be
found here: http://www.redhat.com/security/updates/classification/

The risks associated with fixing this bug are greater than the low severity
security risk. We therefore currently have no plans to fix this flaw in Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 which is in maintenance mode.

If you believe this judgement to be in error, please reopen this bug
with an appropriate comment.
