This bug is now closed. Further updates for individual products will be reflected on the CVE page(s):


Comment 8 Eric Christensen 2020-04-07 19:09:51 UTC

This issue did not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, 7, and 8 as the kernel package never contained the code and is currently not provided in any of our supported products.
