USN-3170-2: Linux kernel (Raspberry Pi 2) vulnerabilities

- linux-raspi2 - Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2
Andrey Konovalov discovered that the ipv6 icmp implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly check data structures on send. A remote attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2016-9919)
Andrey Konovalov discovered that signed integer overflows existed in the
setsockopt() system call when handling the SO_SNDBUFFORCE and
SO_RCVBUFFORCE options. A local attacker with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash or memory
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:
After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
all the necessary changes.
ATTENTION: Due to an unavoidable ABI change the kernel updates have
been given a new version number, which requires you to recompile and
reinstall all third party kernel modules you might have installed.
Unless you manually uninstalled the standard kernel metapackages
(e.g. linux-generic, linux-generic-lts-RELEASE, linux-virtual,
linux-powerpc), a standard system upgrade will automatically perform
this as well.
