Note from the SUSE Security TeamThis problem affects kernels 2.6.9 to 2.6.17, which would imply SUSE Linux Enterprise 10. However it requires the COMPAT_VDSO option specified for the 32bit compatbility mode, which we do not set.
This means that no version of SUSE Linux Enterprise or openSUSE is affected by this problem. SUSE Bugzilla entry: 589036 [RESOLVED / INVALID] No SUSE Security Announcements cross referenced.
