Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-0366-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security Fix: A use-after-free flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Datagram Congestion Control Protocol implementation freed SKB resources for a DCCP_PKT_REQUEST packet when the IPV6_RECVPKTINFO option is set on the socket. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to alter the kernel memory, allowing them to escalate their privileges on the system.

3. Description:

The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux
operating system.

Security Fix(es):

the kernel memory, allowing them to escalate their privileges on the
system. (CVE-2017-6074, Important)

Red Hat would like to thank Andrey Konovalov (Google) for reporting this
issue.
