CVE-2011-1080

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 do_replace function in net/bridge/netfilter/ebtables.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.39 does not ensure that a certain name field ends with a '\0' character, which allows local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel stack memory by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability to replace a table, and then reading a modprobe command line.
