# CVE: CVE-2016-4578

# Category: Local



/*
 * [ Briefs ]
 *    - If snd_timer_user_ccallback() doesn't initialize snd_timer_tread.event and snd_timer_tread.val, they are leaked by snd_timer_user_read()
 *    - This is local exploit against the CVE-2016-4578.
 *
 * [ Tested version ]
 *    - 4.4.0-21-generic #37-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 18 18:33:37 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
 *
 * [ Prerequisites ]
 *    -  
 *
 * [ Goal ]
 *    - Leak 4 bytes kernel pointer address using snd_timer_user_ccallback()
 *
 * [ Run exploit ]
 *    - $ gcc -o poc poc.c
 *    - $ sudo ./poc
 *      leak_value(event) : ffff8800
 *      leak_value(val) : ffffffff
