I got the Altered RPMs email this morning, and found this thread, then followed the instructions in this post to disable PRELINKING.

All that seems to have gone well, but I read later in the thread that it's also recommended that SELinux not be used.

I read the man entry for SELinux, and then ran the following command to peak at the configuration file:
nano /etc/selinux/config
The file was empty, so I'm assuming that SELinux isn't running on my server. Is that correct?

Thanks.
