Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-0045-01
Posted Jan 19, 2016
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-0045-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Two flaws were found in the way the Linux kernel's networking implementation handled UDP packets with incorrect checksum values. A remote attacker could potentially use these flaws to trigger an infinite loop in the kernel, resulting in a denial of service on the system, or cause a denial of service in applications using the edge triggered epoll functionality. All kernel users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.
