Default Linux Kernel Exploit Busily Rooting 64-Bit Machines

For all you 64bit users:
Quote:
"Running 64-bit Linux? Haven't updated yet? You're probably being rooted as I type this. CVE-2010-3081, this week's second high-profile local root exploit in the Linux kernel, is compromising machines left and right.
Read all about it here: http://linux.slashdot.org/article.pl.../09/20/0217204 and here: https://www.ksplice.com/uptrack/cve-2010-3081.ssi.xhtml

I'm still on 32 bit, so no way to test it here.
