[suse-security] Setting system-wide ulimit without rebooting?

is there a way to set a new hard limit (for e.g. core size :-)) on a running
system so that users/processes cannot revert it? It seems I can only
set new limits in my own environment, but what I want is system-wide
new limit to restrict all already running processes (and childs spawned
Like saying "From now on, the new hard limit is 0 on this computer".
So that I could protect all running hosts against the new elfloader bug
without rebooting them.
