CVE-2010-0003 (
  The print_fatal_signal function in kernel/signal.c in the Linux
  kernel before on the i386 platform, when print-fatal-signals
  is enabled, allows local users to discover the contents of arbitrary
  memory locations by jumping to an address and then reading a log
  file, and might allow local users to cause a denial of service
  (system slowdown or crash) by jumping to an address.
