A flaw was found in the Linux kernel in that the aoedisk_debugfs_show() function in drivers/block/aoe/aoeblk.c allows local users to obtain some kernel address information by reading a debugfs file. This address is not useful to commit a further attack.

Created kernel tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1616376]

Comment 5 Vladis Dronov 2018-08-23 11:22:08 UTC
Notes:

The kernel addresses revealed in the debugfs file are of the kernel objects which are allocated dynamically and does not give an information about the kernel code or the static objects location.

While a possible attacker can still use a leaked address for certain purposes we assess this flaw impact as Low.
