Description Prasad J Pandit 2013-12-10 07:25:50 UTC
Linux kernel built with the networking support(CONFIG_NET) is vulnerable to an
information leakage flaw in the socket layer. It could occur while doing
recvmsg(2), recvfrom(2) socket calls. It occurs due to improperly
initialised msg_name & msg_namelen message header parameters.

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