This update for the Linux Kernel 4.4.82-6_9 fixes several issues.
The following security issues were fixed:
- CVE-2017-17712: The raw_sendmsg() function had a race condition that
lead to uninitialized stack pointer usage. This allowed a local user to
execute code and gain privileges (bsc#1073230).
- CVE-2017-16939: The XFRM dump policy implementation allowed local users
to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via a
crafted SO_RCVBUF setsockopt system call in conjunction with
XFRM_MSG_GETPOLICY Netlink messages (bsc#1069708).
