Description Prasad J Pandit 2013-06-06 06:16:24 UTC
Linux kernel built with the Compaq SMART2(CONFIG_BLK_CPQ_DA) & Compaq
Smart Array 5xxx(CONFIG_BLK_CPQ_CISS_DA) support is vulnerable to an
information leakage flaw. This could occur while doing ioctl(2) calls
on block devices - /dev/ida/* & /dev/cciss/* - with command `IDAGETPCIINFO'
or `CCISS_PASSTHRU32'.

A user/program able to access above devices could use this flaw to leak kernel
memory bytes.

This issue does not affect the version of Linux kernel as shipped with
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.          
                                                                                
This issue affects the version of the kernel packages as shipped with           
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2. Future kernel          
updates for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2 may         
address this issue.
