A use-after-free vulnerability was found in ALSA pcm layer, which allows local users to cause a denial of service, memory corruption, or possibly other unspecified impact (CVE-2016-9794). Other fixes in this update: - fix for HID gamepad DragonRise (mga#19853) - fix for radeon driver crashing on Dell Precision M4800 (mga#19892) For other upstream fixes in this update, see the referenced changelogs.
