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

Upstream commit:
http://git.kernel.org/linus/2ebc3464781ad24474abcbd2274e6254689853b5

Reference:
https://btrfs.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Main_Page

The kernel in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 has support for Btrfs by default.

Comment 1 Petr Matousek 2010-07-21 21:21:37 UTC
Statement:

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.

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