Description Wade Mealing 2014-09-16 06:35:39 UTC
A flaw was found in the kernels handling of ceph authentication tickets.  

The auth reply could be returned to a client unvalidated.

Comment 2 Wade Mealing 2014-09-17 05:45:05 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).

Comment 4 Wade Mealing 2014-10-02 03:50:32 UTC
The tracking bug [bug 1142287] has been closed as dupe, being tracked in BZ 1142285.
