Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2013-06-06 07:50:10 UTC
From ${URL} :

Linux kernel built with the Compaq SMART2(CONFIG_BLK_CPQ_DA) & Compaq
Smart Array 5xxx(CONFIG_BLK_CPQ_CISS_DA) support is vulnerable to an
information leakage flaw. This could occur while doing ioctl(2) calls
on block devices - /dev/ida/* & /dev/cciss/* - with command `IDAGETPCIINFO'

A user/program able to access above devices could use this flaw to leak kernel
memory bytes.

CVE-2013-2147 (
  The HP Smart Array controller disk-array driver and Compaq SMART2 controller
  disk-array driver in the Linux kernel through 3.9.4 do not initialize
  certain data structures, which allows local users to obtain sensitive
  information from kernel memory via (1) a crafted IDAGETPCIINFO command for a
  /dev/ida device, related to the ida_locked_ioctl function in
  drivers/block/cpqarray.c or (2) a crafted CCISS_PASSTHRU32 command for a
  /dev/cciss device, related to the cciss_ioctl32_passthru function in
