CVE-2017-13695

Priority
Negligible
Description
The acpi_ns_evaluate() function in drivers/acpi/acpica/nseval.c in the
Linux kernel through 4.12.9 does not flush the operand cache and causes a
kernel stack dump, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information
from kernel memory and bypass the KASLR protection mechanism (in the kernel
through 4.9) via a crafted ACPI table.
Ubuntu-Description
Seunghun Han discovered an information leak in the ACPI handling code in
the Linux kernel when handling early termination of ACPI table loading. A
local attacker could use this to expose sensitive informal (kernel address
locations).
