Comment 17 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2020-04-24 09:54:46 UTC

This flaw is caused by use of an uninitialized memory variable. Practically this has no impact, but in some corner cases it is possible that the contents of this variable could be read by a remote process, causing loss of confidentiality as a result of this. There is no evidence of code execution.
