Reference: http://www.ubuntu.com/usn/USN-1990-1

Comment 1 Ratul Gupta 2014-01-13 16:31:11 UTC
Statement:

Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the versions of xorg-x11-server as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 as our products did not include the vulnerable patch.

The vulnerability was introduced due to a Ubuntu specific patch, which we never used with the xorg-x11-server we ship with our products.
