When is RSA NetWitness going to address the kernel vulnerability (see CVE-2017-1000253)
From RedHat ( CVE-2017-1000253 - Red Hat Customer Portal )
This issue affects the Linux kernel packages as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6. This issue affects the Linux kernel packages as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 prior to kernel version 3.10.0-693, that is Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4 GA kernel version. Kernel versions after 3.10.0-693 contain the fix and are thus not vulnerable.
This issue affects the Linux kernel-rt packages prior to the kernel version 3.10.0-693.rt56.617 (Red Hat Enteprise Linux for Realtime) and 3.10.0-693.2.1.rt56.585.el6rt (Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2). The latest Linux kernel-rt packages as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Realtime and Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2 are not vulnerable.
Future Linux kernel updates for the respective releases will address this issue.
