No description provided by source.


Both cryptoloop and dm-crypt are reported prone to an information disclosure vulnerability. Reports indicate that certain watermarked files may be detected on a filesystem that is encrypted using the affected loop device encryption schemes.

It should be noted that a successful attack would reveal the presence of a watermarked file but not the file contents.
