CVE-2018-5750

Published: 26 January 2018

The acpi_smbus_hc_add function in drivers/acpi/sbshc.c in the Linux kernel through 4.14.15 allows local users to obtain sensitive address information by reading dmesg data from an SBS HC printk call.

From the Ubuntu Security Team

Wang Qize discovered that an information disclosure vulnerability existed in the SMBus driver for ACPI Embedded Controllers in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel pointer addresses).
