Red Hat is aware of this issue and is tracking it via the following bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/CVE-2009-4021
The Linux kernel packages as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4 do not include support for FUSE, and therefore are not affected by this issue.
It was addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0046.html
A future kernel update for Red Hat Enterprise MRG will address this flaw.
