k_deflt-2.4.21-144.i586.rpm

So the -144 version (k_deflt-2.4.21-144.i586.rpm) is named as the fix
but on all the mirrors I checked it is dated Nov 20 - Nov 24 ???
Same for all the other kernel types and suse versions.

And the info file doesn't mention the "brk() vulnerability",
IS this today's fix?

Sorry taking up time on a busy day, but I'm confused...
