* A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation
validated INIT chunks when performing Address Configuration Change
(ASCONF). A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system by
sending a specially crafted SCTP packet to trigger a NULL pointer
dereference on the system. (CVE-2014-7841, Important)
* An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) implementation handled user
controls. A local, privileged user could use this flaw to crash the
system. (CVE-2014-4656, Moderate)
