Bug Description

The bcm_connect function in net/can/bcm.c (aka the Broadcast Manager) in
the Controller Area Network (CAN) implementation in the Linux kernel 2.6.36
and earlier creates a publicly accessible file with a filename containing a
kernel memory address, which allows local users to obtain potentially
sensitive information about kernel memory use by listing this filename.

security vulnerability: no → yes
description: updated

Marking Fix Released for Natty:
