CVE-2014-9585 (retired)

Priority
Description
The vdso_addr function in arch/x86/vdso/vma.c in the Linux kernel through
3.18.2 does not properly choose memory locations for the vDSO area, which
makes it easier for local users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism by
guessing a location at the end of a PMD.
Ubuntu-Description
A flaw was discovered in the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) of
the Virtual Dynamically linked Shared Objects (vDSO) location. This flaw
makes it easier for a local user to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism.
