|Bugzilla:||648670: CVE-2010-4081 kernel: drivers/sound/pci/rme9652/hdspm.c: reading uninitialized stack memory|
The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:
The snd_hdspm_hwdep_ioctl function in sound/pci/rme9652/hdspm.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36-rc6 does not initialize a certain structure, which allows local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel stack memory via an SNDRV_HDSPM_IOCTL_GET_CONFIG_INFO ioctl call.
This issue did not affect the versions of Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 3 and 4 as they did not include support for RME Hammerfall DSP
MADI Audio interface.
