CVE-2011-1160

LOW
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 tpm_open function in drivers/char/tpm/tpm.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.39 does not initialize a certain buffer, which allows local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory via unspecified vectors.
