1 CVE-2006-1056 310 +Info 2006-04-20 2017-10-10
2.1
None Local Low Not required Partial None None
The Linux kernel before 2.6.16.9 and the FreeBSD kernel, when running on AMD64 and other 7th and 8th generation AuthenticAMD processors, only save/restore the FOP, FIP, and FDP x87 registers in FXSAVE/FXRSTOR when an exception is pending, which allows one process to determine portions of the state of floating point instructions of other processes, which can be leveraged to obtain sensitive information such as cryptographic keys. NOTE: this is the documented behavior of AMD64 processors, but it is inconsistent with Intel processors in a security-relevant fashion that was not addressed by the kernels.
2 CVE-2006-0554 +Info 2006-03-06 2017-07-19
1.7
None Local Low Single system None Partial None
Linux kernel 2.6 before 2.6.15.5 allows local users to obtain sensitive information via a crafted XFS ftruncate call, which may return stale data.
3 CVE-2006-0095 +Info 2006-01-06 2017-10-10
2.1
None Local Low Not required Partial None None
dm-crypt in Linux kernel 2.6.15 and earlier does not clear a structure before it is freed, which leads to a memory disclosure that could allow local users to obtain sensitive information about a cryptographic key.
