CVE-2014-9900

Published: 06 August 2016

The ethtool_get_wol function in net/core/ethtool.c in the Linux kernel through 4.7, as used in Android before 2016-08-05 on Nexus 5 and 7 (2013) devices, does not initialize a certain data structure, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information via a crafted application, aka Android internal bug 28803952 and Qualcomm internal bug CR570754.

From the Ubuntu security team

It was discovered that the Linux kernel did not properly initialize a Wake- on-Lan data structure. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory).
