CVE-2013-3235

Published: 22 April 2013

net/tipc/socket.c in the Linux kernel before 3.9-rc7 does not initialize a certain data structure and a certain length variable, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

From the Ubuntu security team

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's TIPC (Transparent Inter Process Communication) protocol implementation. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel's stack memory.
