Subject: CVE Request: OpenAFS: directory information leaks


The OpenAFS project has released a security advisory:

OpenAFS Security Advisory 2016-003

> Topic: directory information leakage
> Issued: 30 November, 2016
> Affected: OpenAFS client versions 1.0 through 1.6.19
>           OpenAFS servers versions 1.0 through 1.6.19
> The contents of OpenAFS directories may be leaked in client cache partitions,
> in fileserver vice partitions, and on the wire for certain RPCs.
> =======
> Due to incomplete initialization or clearing of reused memory, OpenAFS
> directory objects are likely to contain "dead" directory entry information.
> This extraneous information is not active - that is, it is logically invisible
> to the fileserver and client. However, the leaked information is physically
> visible on the fileserver vice partition, on the wire in FetchData replies and
> other RPCs, and on the client cache partition. This constitutes a leak of
> directory information.

I'm attaching the full advisory for reference (and to have it int the
list archives).
