CVE-2013-2239 - Multiple memory leaks in OpenVZ kernel 2.6.32 (042stab080.1)


Description
===========

Two memory leaks was discovered in the versions before vzkernel
patch 042stab080.2.

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)
