Updated kernel-linus packages fixes bugs and a tcp regressionPublication date: 02 Jul 2019
Affected Mageia releases : 6
This kernel-linus update is based on the upstream 4.14.131 and fixes various bugs like use-after-free, null-pointer dereferences and so on. It also adds block level fixes for a potential silent data corruption when using O_DIRECT. It also fixes a regression in the network tcp stack caused by the security fixes added in the MGASA-2019-0195 update, causing applications like steam to stop working. For other uptstream fixes in this update, see the referenced changelogs.
