Yes, but the setuid binaries on the system are far fewer than those of 
most other distributions and none of them exec() other programs so 
impact is greatly reduced. The Linux kernel team (Linus Torvalds et al, 
not the Owl patchers) were the ones that disclosed the vulnerability, so 
2.4.28 should be out fairly soon to fix this problem.
