Description Prasad J Pandit 2013-09-05 07:31:20 EDT
Linux kernel built with the user name-spaces is vulnerable to an incorrect
name-space check when spoofing PID in routine scm_check_creds(). This could
lead to privilege escalation to gain root access to a system.

A local user/program could use this flaw to escalate privileges to gain root
access to the system.

Comment 1 Prasad J Pandit 2013-09-05 07:34:38 EDT

Not vulnerable.

This issue does not affect the versions of the kernel package as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.
