|Class: VULNERABILITY||Family: unix|
The host installed with kernel package on RHEL 7 and is prone to a denial of service vulnerability. A flaw is present in the application, which fails to handle clearing of SELinux attributes. Successful exploitation could allow attackers to empty (null) write to /proc/pid/attr file that can crash the system by causing the system to attempt to access unmapped kernel memory.
