CVE-2008-0598

Published: 30 June 2008

Unspecified vulnerability in the 32-bit and 64-bit emulation in the Linux kernel 2.6.9, 2.6.18, and probably other versions allows local users to read uninitialized memory via unknown vectors involving a crafted binary.

From the Ubuntu Security Team

Tavis Ormandy discovered that the ia32 emulation under 64bit kernels did not fully clear uninitialized data. A local attacker could read private kernel memory, leading to a loss of privacy.
