[slackware-security] kernel (SSA:2014-050-03)

New kernel packages are available for Slackware 14.1 (64-bit) to fix a
security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware64 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/linux-3.10.17-2/*:
These are new kernels that fix CVE-2014-0038, a bug that can allow local
users to gain a root shell.
Be sure to reinstall LILO (run "lilo" as root) after upgrading the kernel
packages, or on UEFI systems, copy the appropriate kernel to
/boot/efi/EFI/Slackware/vmlinuz).
For more information, see:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-0038
(* Security fix *)
