Description Petr Matousek 2010-07-21 17:20:50 EDT
Description of problem:
The existing [btrfs] code would have allowed you to overwrite append-only files. Not an expected behaviour.

Upstream commit:


The kernel in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 has support for Btrfs by default.
Comment 1 Petr Matousek 2010-07-21 17:21:37 EDT

Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the versions of Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, 5 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG as they did not include support for Btrfs, a new copy on write filesystem.
Comment 3 Eugene Teo (Security Response) 2010-08-01 23:50:07 EDT

Red Hat would like to thank Dan Rosenberg for responsibly reporting this issue.
