Red Hat Linux IPTables Firewall Failure Vulnerability

iptables on Red Hat Linux systems has been reported prone to a vulnerability, which may prevent the iptables firewall from functioning correctly.

The issue presents itself due to recent Red Hat kernel updates. It has been reported that a recent kernel update failed to update the iptables utility thereby preventing iptables operations, for example owner match, from functioning.
