commit 542db01579fbb7ea7d1f7bb9ddcef1559df660b2 upstream.
In drivers/cdrom/cdrom.c mmc_ioctl_cdrom_read_data() allocates a memory
area with kmalloc in line 2885.
2885 cgc->buffer = kmalloc(blocksize, GFP_KERNEL);
2886 if (cgc->buffer == NULL)
2887 return -ENOMEM;
In line 2908 we can find the copy_to_user function:
2908 if (!ret && copy_to_user(arg, cgc->buffer, blocksize))
The cgc->buffer is never cleaned and initialized before this function.
If ret = 0 with the previous basic block, it's possible to display some
memory bytes in kernel space from userspace.
When we read a block from the disk it normally fills the ->buffer but if
the drive is malfunctioning there is a chance that it would only be
partially filled. The result is an leak information to userspace.
