CVE-2013-7268

Priority
Low
Description
The ipx_recvmsg function in net/ipx/af_ipx.c in the Linux kernel before
3.12.4 updates a certain length value without ensuring that an associated
data structure has been initialized, which allows local users to obtain
sensitive information from kernel memory via a (1) recvfrom, (2) recvmmsg,
or (3) recvmsg system call.
Ubuntu-Description
An information leak was discovered in the recvfrom, recvmmsg, and recvmsg
systemcalls when used with ipx protocol sockets in the Linux kernel. A
local user could exploit this leak to obtain potentially sensitive
information from kernel memory.
