Linux Kernel Btrfs Integer Overflow Information Disclosure Vulnerability

The Linux kernel is prone to a local information-disclosure vulnerability because it fails to properly validate user-supplied input. This issue affects the Btrfs filesystem implementation.

Successful exploits will allow attackers to read sensitive filesystem data. Due to the nature of this issue, arbitrary code execution may be possible, but this has not been confirmed.
