From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-ac6 i686; en-US; m18)
According to Bugtraq an exploitable race exists in kernel "up to 2.2.18".
The rpm contains something that looks like a patch
(linux-2.2.19-ptrace.patch), but I'd like some statement whether it
actually fixes the problem.
"Solar designer" notes on BUGTRAQ that there may be other possible races
An exploit was published on BUGTRAQ on 27.03.01.
Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
The errata notes provide this information. The answer is that
at the time of release, it fixed all known ptrace bugs.
