This issue does not affect the Linux kernel packages as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2 only support 64-bit architectures. Since exploiting this issue on 64-bit platforms is not feasible given the amount of input data that is necessary to trigger the integer overflow, we are currently not planning planning to fix this issue in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.
Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2:
This vulnerability has been rated as having a security impact of Low. After evaluation and in accordance with the criteria noted in the product support life cycle, there are no plans to address this issue in an upcoming release. Please contact Red Hat Support for further information.
