From the article the problematic code generated is the native code executed by the processor. So in fact I believe the problem exist for all language using a VM using a Just-in-Time compiler: C#, Java, but also future version of Python, Perl running on a VM doing JiT compilation.
The security problem won't anyway be fixed by PaX or SELinux. Any language providing an eval function will have this type of problem, just at a higher level.
