Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-03-25 13:27:44 UTC
CVE-2014-1444 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2014-1444):

The fst_get_iface function in drivers/net/wan/farsync.c in the Linux kernel before 3.11.7 does not 
properly initialize a certain data structure, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information 
from kernel memory by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for an SIOCWANDEV ioctl call.
