This issue has been rated as having moderate security impact.
A future update in Red Hat Enterprise MRG may address this flaw. This issue was addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5 via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0146.html and https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0147.html respectively.
This issue is not planned to be fixed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, due to this product being in Production 3 of its maintenance life-cycle, where only qualified security errata of important or critical impact are addressed.
