downloading fix for recent security vulnerability - RH v2.1 AS

For the recent security vulnerability allowing local users to gain root priveleges, has anybody found a valid link to download the fix from? I can't seem to get into Red Hat's FTP site.

You can try using yum if the standard redhat FTP servers are maxxed out.


The Redhat site looks like it's alright now. Follow this link and select the appropriate kernel (386,686,athlon) for your processor architecture and Redhat version.
