Debian Bug : 828914

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that
may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or information
leaks.

CVE-2014-9904

It was discovered that the snd_compress_check_input function used in
the ALSA subsystem does not properly check for an integer overflow,
allowing a local user to cause a denial of service.

CVE-2016-5728

Pengfei Wang discovered a race condition in the MIC VOP driver that
could allow a local user to obtain sensitive information from kernel
memory or cause a denial of service.

CVE-2016-5828

Cyril Bur and Michael Ellerman discovered a flaw in the handling of
Transactional Memory on powerpc systems allowing a local user to
cause a denial of service (kernel crash) or possibly have
unspecified other impact, by starting a transaction, suspending it,
and then calling any of the exec() class system calls.

CVE-2016-5829

A heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability was found in the hiddev
driver, allowing a local user to cause a denial of service or,
potentially escalate their privileges.

CVE-2016-6130

Pengfei Wang discovered a flaw in the S/390 character device drivers
potentially leading to information leak with /dev/sclp.

Additionally this update fixes a regression in the ebtables facility
(#828914) that was introduced in DSA-3607-1.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
version 3.16.7-ckt25-2+deb8u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your linux packages.
