Description James Morris 2007-04-25 23:02:11 UTC
For details, see upstream thread:
http://marc.info/?t=117752881400003&r=1&w=2
(also includes patch)


RHEL4 and previous are not vulnerable, no fix is needed for
them because they completely lack this feature and this code.

Although initially reported on stable@kernel.org, the patch
and resulting discussion happened on netdev@vger.kernel.org
so this bug is fully public knowledge.

Comment 1 James Morris 2007-04-25 23:04:01 UTC
Fedora kernels may be affected (any kernel since Jun 20th, 2005).
