Description Pedro Sampaio 2017-08-03 13:08:30 UTC
In atyfb_ioctl() structure atyclk is copied to userland with padding bytes after
"vclk_post_div" field unitialized. It leads to leaking of contents of kernel stack memory. We have to initialize them to zero. Or it will allows local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel stack memory by reading a copy of this structure.




Suggested patch:



Comment 1 Pedro Sampaio 2017-08-03 13:10:18 UTC
Created kernel tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1478019]

Comment 3 Justin M. Forbes 2017-08-03 13:28:24 UTC
# CONFIG_FB_ATY is not set

We don't enable this driver in fedora

Comment 4 Vladis Dronov 2017-08-29 10:44:28 UTC
