Linux Kernel CPUSet Tasks Memory Leak Information Disclosure Vulnerability

The Linux kernel is prone to an information-disclosure vulnerability because it fails to handle unexpected user-supplied input.

Successful exploits will allow attackers to obtain portions of kernel memory. Information harvested may aid in further attacks.

Versions of the Linux kernel prior to 2.6.21.4 and 2.6.20.13 are vulnerable.

This issue was initially reported in BID 24376 Linux Kernel Multiple Weaknesses and Vulnerabilities, but has been assigned its own record.
