The host is installed with polkit on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and is prone to a denial of service vulnerability. A flaw is present in the application, which fails to properly handle an invalid object path when calling RegisterAuthenticationAgent. Successful exploitation could allow local attackers to crash the service.
