Linux Kernel CVE-2019-11815 Race Condition Vulnerability

Post by Sukumar2574 » 2019/05/22 13:21:27

This vulnerability affects only the Linux kernels prior to 5.0.8, that uses the Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS) for the TCP module. RedHat confirmed that the affected code is not built in any of the versions from 5. How to know if CentOS is affected or Not. I have searched on the internet and did not find anything about this.

TIA

CentOS is a rebuild of RHEL with the same options selected (unless you are using the centosplus kernel which has some extra options selected).

CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
