Updated kernel-tmb packages fixes security and other bugsPublication date: 13 Aug 2017
Affected Mageia releases : 6
This kernel-tmb update is based on upstream 4.9.40 and fixes atleast the following security issues: Linux kernel built with the VirtIO GPU driver(CONFIG_DRM_VIRTIO_GPU) support is vulnerable to a memory leakage issue. It could occur while creating a virtio gpu object in virtio_gpu_object_create(). A user/process could use this flaw to leak host kernel memory potentially resulting in Dos (CVE-2017-10810). It also contains followup fixes to the Stack Clash (CVE-2017-1000370, CVE-2017-1000371) security issues resolved in kernels released at end of June, 2017. Other Mageia kernel specific fixes in this updates: - enable support for NFS4_1 and NFS4_2 (mga#21182) - ALSA: hda/realtek - New codecs support for ALC215/ALC285/ALC289 - ALSA: hda/realtek - New codec device ID for ALC1220 - platform/x86: asus-nb-wmi: Add wapf4 quirk for the X302UA (mga#18756) For other upstream fixes in this update, read the referenced changelogs.
