Description:
  There is a bug in the current version of the GNU C Library (glibc)
  that is shipped with Immunix Linux 6.2.  This bug can allow
  unprivileged users to corrupt files that would normally be restricted
  to them (like /etc/shadow) by allowing them to preload libraries that
  were not specified by the system administrator.  

  Packages have been created and released for Immunix 6.2 to fix this
  problem.
