CVE-2013-2930

Priority
Medium
Description
The perf_trace_event_perm function in kernel/trace/trace_event_perf.c in
the Linux kernel before 3.12.2 does not properly restrict access to the
perf subsystem, which allows local users to enable function tracing via a
crafted application.
Ubuntu-Description
Dave Jones and Vince Weaver reported a flaw in the Linux kernel's per event
subsystem that allows normal users to enable function tracing. An
unprivileged local user could exploit this flaw to obtain potentially
sensitive information from the kernel.
