Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2004-07-15 07:57:03 EDT
Back in October 2003 Arnaldo commited some fixes prior to 2.6 for some
leaking info to userspace in the usb drivers:

The corresponding changes have not been commited to 2.4, or included in
the previous sparse fixes.  So I've assigned them CAN-2004-0685 (for 2.4
only, as they were fixed before 2.6.0).   Treat as public.

updated USB driver data leak patch

Pete, I'll take care of this in the next U4 build, since Mark
was kind enough to post a patch to rhkernel-list (15-Jul-2004).
Mark, I'm dropping 2 of the original patch hunks because they
are unnecessary (in view of the strncpy() fixes made in U2),
and I've tweaked the remaining 3 hunks to zero only the
unassigned data fields.
Comment 3 Ernie Petrides 2004-09-01 22:46:07 EDT
The changes in comment #2 have just been committed to the RHEL3 U4
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-20.2.EL).
Comment 4 Ernie Petrides 2004-11-24 20:22:18 EST
The fix for this problem has also been committed to the RHEL3 E4
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-20.0.1.EL).
