Description

This update for the Linux Kernel 3.12.53-60_30 fixes several issues.

The following security bugs were fixed: - CVE-2016-6480: Race condition in the ioctl_send_fib function in drivers/scsi/aacraid/commctrl.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds access or system crash) by changing a certain size value, aka a "double fetch" vulnerability (bsc#991667). - CVE-2016-5829: Multiple heap-based buffer overflows in the hiddev_ioctl_usage function in drivers/hid/usbhid/hiddev.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted (1) HIDIOCGUSAGES or (2) HIDIOCSUSAGES ioctl call (bsc#986573). - CVE-2016-4997: The compat IPT_SO_SET_REPLACE setsockopt implementation in the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (memory corruption) by leveraging in-container root access to provide a crafted offset value that triggers an unintended decrement (bsc#986377).
