CVE-2005-4605

New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

The procfs code (proc_misc.c) in Linux 2.6.14.3 and other versions before 2.6.15 allows attackers to read sensitive kernel memory via unspecified vectors in which a signed value is added to an unsigned value.
