Description Prasad J Pandit 2013-04-24 05:12:16 EDT
Linux kernel built with the The Infrared Data Associations (CONFIG_IRDA)
protocol is vulnerable to an information leakage flaw. It occurs while
receiving messages via recvmsg(2) socket call.

A user/program could use this flaw to leak kernel memory bytes.
