The host is installed with kernel on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 or 7 and is prone to a privilege escalation vulnerability. A flaw is present in the application, which fails to properly handle fork(2) and close(2) system calls with an 'int80' entry. Successful exploitation could allow attackers to escalate the privileges on the system.
