CVE-2015-8569 (retired)

Priority
Description
The (1) pptp_bind and (2) pptp_connect functions in drivers/net/ppp/pptp.c
in the Linux kernel through 4.3.3 do not verify an address length, which
allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory and
bypass the KASLR protection mechanism via a crafted application.
Ubuntu-Description
Dmitry Vyukov discovered that the pptp implementation in the Linux kernel
did not verify an address length when setting up a socket. A local attacker
could use this to craft an application that exposed sensitive information
from kernel memory.
Notes
 jdstrand> android kernels (flo, goldfish, grouper, maguro, mako and manta) are
  not supported on the Ubuntu Touch 14.10 and earlier preview kernels
 jdstrand> linux-lts-saucy no longer receives official support
 jdstrand> linux-lts-quantal no longer receives official support
 apw> pptp: verify sockaddr_len in pptp_bind() and pptp_connect()
