CVE-2017-17864 (retired)

Priority
Description
kernel/bpf/verifier.c in the Linux kernel through 4.14.8 mishandles
states_equal comparisons between the pointer data type and the
UNKNOWN_VALUE data type, which allows local users to obtain potentially
sensitive address information, aka a "pointer leak."
Ubuntu-Description
Jann Horn discovered that the Berkeley Packet Filter (BPF) implementation
in the Linux kernel mishandled pointer data values in some situations. A
local attacker could use this to to expose sensitive information (kernel
memory).
