FreeBSD -- Information leak in kldstat(2)

Affected packages

11.1 <= FreeBSD-kernel < 11.1_4

Details

VuXML ID 759059ac-dab3-11e7-b5af-a4badb2f4699

Discovery 2017-11-15

Entry 2017-12-06

Problem Description:

The kernel does not properly clear the memory of the kld_file_stat structure 
before filling the data. Since the structure filled by the kernel is allocated
on the kernel stack and copied to userspace, a leak of information from the 
kernel stack is possible.

Impact:

Some bytes from the kernel stack can be observed in userspace.
