The ExecShield feature in a certain Red Hat patch for the Linux kernel
in Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5 and 6 and Fedora 15 and 16 does
not properly handle use of many shared libraries by a 32-bit
executable file, which makes it easier for context-dependent attackers
to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism by leveraging a predictable
base address for one of these libraries.
