Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2004-06-03 08:41:16 EDT
According to
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.4/testing/patch-2.4.27.log a
recent kernel fix was applied "e1000: fix probable security hole".

This issue in fact is a minor information leak via the e1000 driver
that can reveal 24 bytes of kernel memory to users (if e1000 driver is
loaded)

No CVE name yet available
See Bug #125168 for a patch (will need to be backported)
