Description msiddiqu 2020-03-31 20:10:08 UTC
A vulnerability was found in sync debug fs driver in Kernel where there is a kernel pointer leak due to the usage of printf with %p. This could lead to local information disclosure with system execution privileges needed. User interaction is not needed for exploitation.
