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.

Comment 2 Petr Matousek 2010-11-02 11:10:29 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 the Conexant's
CX23415/CX23416 codec chip.
