CVE-2016-4482

Priority
Description
The proc_connectinfo function in drivers/usb/core/devio.c in the Linux
kernel through 4.6 does not initialize a certain data structure, which
allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory
via a crafted USBDEVFS_CONNECTINFO ioctl call.
Ubuntu-Description
Kangjie Lu discovered an information leak in the core USB implementation in
the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to obtain potentially
sensitive information from kernel memory.
