CVE-2014-1446 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2014-1446):

The yam_ioctl function in drivers/net/hamradio/yam.c in the Linux kernel before 3.12.8 does not initialize 
a certain structure member, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by 
leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for an SIOCYAMGCFG ioctl call.
