Statement: This issue does not affect the Linux kernel packages as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 as the code which can trigger the flaw is not present in the products listed. This issue affects the Linux kernel packages as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, 7 and MRG-2. Future Linux kernel updates for the respective releases might address this issue.
Comment 9 Ben Hutchings 2017-04-01 04:06:22 UTC
This seems to be the same issue as CVE-2017-6951. Is there really any difference between the two?

Re: Ben Hutchings They do appear to be the same flaw, this issue in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 seem to have a greater impact (RIP modification). EL6 doesn't has the same privesc capability with the reproducer that I have, it doesn't mean it can't be tricked into privesc. It looks as though the fix for EL6 fixes both CVE's. I'm going to mark both as fixed in the same errata. I will continue my investigation on Wednesday to confirm this. At this time Red Hat is not interested in correcting the double allocation. The end user shouldn't be affected.

Well, after investigating both. I'm going to call it a different flaw. The fix propsed by David does solve both issues.
