Description Petr Matousek 2010-11-01 21:21:46 UTC
Description of problem:
The TIOCGICOUNT device ioctl in nozomi.c allows unprivileged users to read uninitialized stack memory, because the "reserved" member of the serial_icounter_struct struct declared on the stack is not altered or zeroed before being copied back to the user.

Comment 2 Petr Matousek 2010-11-02 10:57:44 UTC
Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 3, 4, and 5 as they did not include support for GlobeTrotter
HSPDA PCMCIA card.
