Details

Dmitry Vyukov discovered that the KVM implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly initialize the Code Segment (CS) in certain
error cases. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive
information (kernel memory).

Baozeng Ding discovered a race condition that could lead to a use-after-
free in the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) subsystem of the Linux
kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash). (CVE-2016-9794)
