For those of you running Slackware. The ChangeLog for Slackware-current shows that there are now updated kernel packages, that fix this problem, available.
Mon Feb 11 17:47:58 CST 2008
Upgraded to Linux 18.104.22.168 uniprocessor generic.s (requires initrd) kernel.
All of these kernel upgrades fix yesterday's local root exploit.
The kernel headers did not change, so a glibc rebuild is not required.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
If you use lilo, don't forget to run it again after the upgrade.
