One memory leak in ploop: The ploop_getdevice_ioc function in drivers/block/ploop/dev.c in the vzkernel patch before 042stab080.2 does not initialize a certain length variable, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory. One memory leak in quota: The compat_quotactl function in fs/quota/quota.c in the vzkernel patch before 042stab080.2 does not initialize a certain length variable, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory. Fixed in the 042stab080.2 - [security/ploop] memory info leak fixed (PSBM-20690) - [security/quota] memory info leak fixed (PSBM-20690) Classification
