Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-07-04 08:26:41 UTC
CVE-2014-1739 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2014-1739):
  The media_device_enum_entities function in drivers/media/media-device.c 
  in the Linux kernel before 3.14.6 does not initialize a certain data structure, 
  which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory 
  by leveraging /dev/media0 read access for a MEDIA_IOC_ENUM_ENTITIES ioctl 
  call.
