(edit)
In the Linux kernel versions 4.12, 3.10, 2.6, and possibly earlier, a race condition vulnerability exists in the sound system allowing for a potential deadlock and memory corruption due to use-after-free condition and thus denial of service. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out, although we believe it is unlikely.

What is Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 for ARM 64,
        Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 for Power 9 LE

The kernel package as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 for ARM 64 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 for Power 9 LE is an updated kernel intended to support new architectures not available at the time of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 original shipping. The new kernel version is based on an upstream Linux kernel version 4.11. The offering is distributed with other updated packages, but most of the userspace is the standard Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Server RPM files.

Statement:

This issue affects the version of Linux kernel package as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. This is not currently planned to be addressed in future updates of the product due to its life cycle. For additional information, refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Life Cycle: https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata/.

This issue affects the versions of the Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, 7, its real-time kernel, Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 for ARM 64 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 for Power 9 LE. Future Linux kernel updates for the respective releases may address this issue.
