Description :

USN-1700-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel. Due to an

Original advisory details:

A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel's handling of script
execution when module loading is enabled. A local attacker could
exploit this flaw to cause a leak of kernel stack contents.

Florian Weimer discovered that hypervkvpd, which is distributed in
the Linux kernel, was not correctly validating source addresses of
netlink packets. An untrusted local user can cause a denial of
