Well, this is why it is most often described in the security advisory.

To be shure one can eighter use "init 1" and get back to multi user mode, or
use tools like "lsof" or my package of "memstat" to find loaded and deleeted

This is also good to do on a regular interval if you update your systems for
no security reasons:

- it will free memory and will make the filesystem get rid of open/deleted
files, which can cause problems like the inability to remount ro or messages
like "setting dtime of deleted inode" on fsck.
