CVE-2007-4574 EM64T local DoS
Last modified: 2011-09-28 19:15:47 EDT
The RHEL kernel was missing some stack unwinder fixes which leads to an
incorrect CS bit being set, and a kernel OOps. This can be triggered by an
unprivileged local user on a EM64T architecture system.
Note this doesn't affect upstream which contains a different fix.
More details, fix, and reproducer in bz#213313
