Linux Kernel Race Condition Arbitrary /proc Memory Read
Local Access Required
Loss of Confidentiality
The Linux Kernel contains a flaw that may lead to an unauthorized information disclosure. The issue is triggered when a local attacker attempts to re-use memory pages before they are properly recycled, which may disclose sensitive information from memory such as usernames, passwords or other information not meant to be shared, resulting in a loss of confidentiality.
Currently, there are no known workarounds or upgrades to correct this issue. However, the vulnerability reporter has released a patch to address this vulnerability.
