An update for bluez is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security
impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each
vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

The bluez packages contain the following utilities for use in
Bluetooth applications: hcitool, hciattach, hciconfig, bluetoothd,
l2ping, start scripts (Red Hat), and pcmcia configuration files.
