CVE-2013-0160 (retired)

Priority
Description
The Linux kernel through 3.7.9 allows local users to obtain sensitive
information about keystroke timing by using the inotify API on the
/dev/ptmx device.
Ubuntu-Description
An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel when inotify is used
to monitor the /dev/ptmx device. A local user could exploit this flaw to
discover keystroke timing and potentially discover sensitive information
like password length.
Notes
 apw> the spender sidechannel patch above may not be generally applicable
 apw> but I include it for completeness.
 henrix> commit b0de59b5733d18b0d1974a060860a8b5c1b36a2e is not sufficient to
 henrix> fix the CVE because an application doesn't have to read atime/mtime
 henrix> (as is the case for the PoC). The 2 additional commits fix a
 henrix> regression and mark the shared ptmx node as un-notifiable (which will
 henrix> cause additional problems to backport them to Lucid, as it doesn't have
 henrix> this feature)
