While it's true that the kernel dmesg buffer by default can be read by anyone using the dmesg(1) command, this can be disabled by setting the sysctl kernel.dmesg_restrict to 1, but doing so as a hardening measure is thwarted by the world readable nature of /var/log/dmesg. The reason dmesg output is sensitive is that it sometimes contains kernel addresses for diagnosing kernel problems, but attackers looking to attack a kernel are also interested in kernel addresses and other information that shows up there. [Test Case] To reproduce: $ ls -l /var/log/dmesg* should show only root and group adm access like so: -rw-r----- 1 root adm 50178 Jun 23 12:55 /var/log/dmesg -rw-r----- 1 root adm 50217 Jun 23 12:55 /var/log/dmesg.0 -rw-r----- 1 root adm 13941 Jun 23 12:47 /var/log/dmesg.1.gz and not world readable: -rw-r--r-- 1 root adm 45146 Jun 16 12:32 /var/log/dmesg [Regression Potential] It's possible tools like apport and others might expect /var/log/dmesg to be world-readable.
