7 2.6.16-r12 is protected from this bug. From the ChangeLog:
9 *gentoo-sources-2.6.16-r12 (06 Jul 2006)
11 06 Jul 2006; Daniel Drake <dsd@g.o>
12 +gentoo-sources-2.6.16-r12.ebuild:
13 Update to Linux for coredump privilege escalation security fix
15 However, there is a new security bug in the wild, with similar
16 implications. Keep an eye open for new kernel releases over the next few
17 hours.
