The article claims that "Most popular Linux distributions do not make use of available security technologies that would deflect a large number of these attacks."
However, I'd like to point out that Fedora Core 1 and 2, as well as RHEL 3 update 3 provide ExecShield. ExecSheild, as I understand it, also provides Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) -- so PaX isn't the only show in town.
