Some weaknesses have been reported in Linux Kernel, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to disclose potentially sensitive information.

The weaknesses are caused due to some errors related to implementations of the "recvmsg()" and "recvfrom()" functions and can be exploited to disclose potentially sensitive uninitialized kernel stack memory.

Successful exploitation requires the kernel to be built with the networking support(CONFIG_NET).

The weaknesses are reported in versions prior to 3.2.54, 3.4.73, 3.10.23, and 3.12.4.
