Description Mark J. Cox 2007-09-13 08:01:42 EDT
Already fixed for RHEL4, but not for RHEL3/2.1-ia64.  See bz#205335 for
EL4 reproducer.

From Kirill Korotaev:

When running on IA64 or SPARC platforms, local users can cause a denial of
service via a malformed ELF file and then triggered by cross-region mappings.
