Hello,

The Genlock driver does not properly initialize all members of a
structure before copying it to user space. This allows a local
attacker to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel
stack memory via ioctl system calls.

This should be classified as CWE-200 Information Disclosure, "memory
leak" refers to memory being used and not released properly, resulting
in out of memory conditions.
