CVE-2009-0676

Priority
Description
The sock_getsockopt function in net/core/sock.c in the Linux kernel before
2.6.28.6 does not initialize a certain structure member, which allows local
users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory via an
SO_BSDCOMPAT getsockopt request.
Ubuntu-Description
The getsockopt function did not correctly clear certain parameters. A
local attacker could read leaked kernel memory, leading to a loss of
privacy.
