Description Wade Mealing 2014-09-16 06:32:43 UTC
A flaw was reported in the Linux kernel where the libceph auth token could
cause the kernel to incorrectly handle kmalloc failure.

Comment 2 Wade Mealing 2014-09-17 05:44:57 UTC
Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of the Linux kernel packages as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, 7.0 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2 (as they did not include support for this feature).
