Description Wade Mealing 2014-09-16 06:09:11 UTC
A buffer overflow is present in the method that the kernel uses to handle libceph auth tokens.

Comment 2 Wade Mealing 2014-09-16 23:54:36 UTC

This issue did not affect the versions of the Linux kernel packages as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, 7 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2 (as they did not include support for this feature).
