A new modutils-2.3.21 package has been released to correctly enable safe
guard measures introduced in modutils-2.3.20.
2000-11-27: Added packages for Red Hat Linux 7 for Alpha
The previous packages of modutils released to address a local root
compromise contained an error in new safe guards that caused them to
not properly be enabled when run as root from the kmod process. These
new safe guards check the arguments passed to modules. The new 2.3.21
modutils package fixes this error and correctly checks the arguments
when running from kmod, limiting kernel module arguments to those
specified in /etc/conf.modules (on Red Hat Linux 6.2) or /etc/modules.conf (on Red Hat Linux 7). This release supersedes the previous modutils errata packages.
