Description

This update for the Linux Kernel 3.12.55-52_42 fixes one issue. The following security bug was fixed :

  • CVE-2017-5970: The ipv4_pktinfo_prepare function in net/ipv4/ip_sockglue.c in the Linux kernel allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via (1) an application that made crafted system calls or possibly (2) IPv4 traffic with invalid IP options (bsc#1025013).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
