This update for the Linux Kernel 4.4.21-84 fixes several issues.

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).

The following non-security bug was fixed:

  • Fix for a "Data miscompare on a read" which was observed during the
    rebuilding of degraded MDRAID VDs. (bsc#1025254)
