Description

A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2016-7042) Dmitry Vyukov discovered a use-after-free vulnerability during error processing in the recvmmsg(2) implementation in the Linux kernel. A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-7117)
