CVE-2017-13694
Source: MITRE
Last Modified: 08/25/2017
CVE-2017-13694

This vulnerability is currently awaiting analysis.

The acpi_ps_complete_final_op() function in drivers/acpi/acpica/psobject.c in the Linux kernel through 4.12.9 does not flush the node and node_ext caches and causes a kernel stack dump, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory and bypass the KASLR protection mechanism (in the kernel through 4.9) via a crafted ACPI table. 31 more words
