|Bugzilla:||633170: CVE-2010-3086 kernel panic via futex|
The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:
include/asm-x86/futex.h in the Linux kernel before 2.6.25 does not properly implement exception fixup, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (panic) via an invalid application that triggers a page fault.
This issue did not affect the version of Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 3 and 4 as they did not support for the FUTEX_LOCK_PI futex operation. It did not affect the version of Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise MRG as it has already had the fix to this issue. This issue was addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0839.html
