Description Petr Matousek 2010-11-01 21:24:16 UTC
Description of problem:
The FBIOGET_VBLANK device ioctl in ivtvfb.c allows unprivileged users to read 16 bytes of uninitialized stack memory, because the 'reserved' member of the fb_vblank struct declared on the stack is not altered or zeroed before being copied back to the user.



Red Hat would like to thank Dan Rosenberg for reporting this issue.

Comment 2 Petr Matousek 2010-11-02 11:10:29 UTC

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 the Conexant's
CX23415/CX23416 codec chip.
