CVE-2009-3228

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 tc_fill_tclass function in net/sched/sch_api.c in the tc subsystem in the Linux kernel 2.4.x before 2.4.37.6 and 2.6.x before 2.6.31-rc9 does not initialize certain (1) tcm__pad1 and (2) tcm__pad2 structure members, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via unspecified vectors.
