Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2013:0829 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Important: kernel-rt security and bug fix update 2013-05-20 20:47:02 UTC

Description Prasad J Pandit 2013-04-24 11:27:07 UTC
Linux kernel built with the User-space interface for hash algorithms
(CONFIG_CRYPTO_USER_API_HASH) and User-space interface for symmetric key
cipher algorithms (CONFIG_CRYPTO_USER_API_SKCIPHER) support is vulnerable
to an information leakage flaw. It occurs while receiving messages via
recvmsg(2) call.

A user/program could use this flaw to leak kernel memory bytes.

Upstream fix:
