Quoting from the Fedora tracking bug for this bug 1862371 comment 3:

(In reply to Hans de Goede from comment #2)
> According to:
> https://github.com/lua/lua/commit/a2195644d89812e5b157ce7bac35543e06db05e3.
> patch
> The problem is "The field 'L->oldpc' is not always updated when control
> returns to a function;"
> compat-lua / lua 5.1 does not have an oldpc variable in its state-struct, so
> it cannot go stale / end up pointing to no longer valid memory since it does
> not exist.
> As such I believe that this CVE does not apply to compat-lua.
> How should we move forward with this bug?

Sorry for the late reply, I was on vacation.
Just close this bug as NOTABUG and that's it.

Thanks for looking at it.

The same applies to the EPEL package, so I'm closing this bug as NOTABUG.
