For some reason, I'm not able to access bug 1744138, which I'd assume is the RHEL-8-specific bug I need to address in my wireless update... Can someone please take a look at this? Prepping a big wireless update for RHEL-8 right now, and want to include all these CVE bugs.

Comment 5 John W. Linville 2019-11-22 18:28:10 UTC
FWIW, I cannot see bug 1744138 either.

Comment 6 Wade Mealing 2019-11-25 10:04:18 UTC
Created kernel tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1776225]

Comment 7 Wade Mealing 2019-11-25 10:17:03 UTC
These are not rhel8 bugs, thats a task bug that is private to product security team. I'll be making the trackers for this today.

Comment 8 msiddiqu 2019-11-25 10:19:45 UTC
Clearing needinfo based on comment 7

Comment 15 Justin M. Forbes 2019-11-25 15:45:15 UTC
This was fixed for Fedora with the 5.2.17 stable kernel updates.
