since it became clear from the discussion in January about the uselib()

follows at least some of the responsable disclosure rules, no exploit code will be 
released. Instead, only a proof-of-concept code is released to demonstrate 
the vulnerability.


And here's a patch for 2.6 that is completly untested.  I'll work on
testing it today and if it works, we will release a new 2.6.11.y release
with this fix in it.

Subject: possibly fix Linux kernel ELF core dump privilege elevation

As noted by Paul Starzetz

references CAN-something-I-need-to-go-look-up...

CAN-2005-1263  is the correct one.  Sorry for being lazy and not looking
it up right away.
