Description Mark J. Cox 2006-01-06 16:48:44 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #177136 +++

CVE-2006-0095 says:
        dm-crypt in Linux kernel 2.6.15 and earlier does not clear a
        structure before it is freed, which leads to a memory
        disclosure that could allow local users to obtain sensitive
        information about a cryptographic key.

More details and the straightforward patch are here:

This is a mass-update to all currently open kernel bugs.

A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.

Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.

This bug has been placed in NEEDINFO_REPORTER state.
Due to the large volume of inactive bugs in bugzilla, if this bug is
