Flaw bug created to hold information about an old flaw we knew something about. For more details see the MITRE CVE description.
The __block_prepare_write function in fs/buffer.c for Linux kernel 2.6.x before 2.6.13 does not properly clear buffers during certain error conditions, which allows local users to read portions of files that have been unlinked.
