Description Andrej Nemec 2017-01-31 08:49:20 UTC
An elevation of privilege vulnerability in the kernel sound subsystem could enable a local malicious application to execute arbitrary code within the context of the kernel.

Comment 1 Andrej Nemec 2017-01-31 08:53:15 UTC

This issue did not affect the versions of the Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, as they did not include support for Android kernel sound subsystem.
