The host is installed with e2fsprogs before 1.42.9-7 on Redhat Enterprise Linux 7 and before 1.42.12-21 on Redhat Enterprise Linux 6 and is prone to a heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability. A flaw is present in the application, which causes a crafted block group descriptor to be marked as dirty. Successful exploitation allows local users to execute arbitrary code.
