CVE-2015-2042 (retired)

Priority
Description
net/rds/sysctl.c in the Linux kernel before 3.19 uses an incorrect data
type in a sysctl table, which allows local users to obtain potentially
sensitive information from kernel memory or possibly have unspecified other
impact by accessing a sysctl entry.
Ubuntu-Description
An information leak was discovered in how the Linux kernel handles setting
the Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS) settings. A local user could exploit
this flaw to read data from other sysctl settings.
