The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:
pt_chown in GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.18 does not properly check permissions for tty files, which allows local users to change the permission on the files and obtain access to arbitrary pseudo-terminals by leveraging a FUSE file system.
Not Vulnerable. This issue does not affect the version of glibc as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6.
