Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that
may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or information


Li Qiang discovered that the DRM driver for VMware virtual GPUs does
not properly check user-controlled values in the
vmw_surface_define_ioctl() functions for upper limits. A local user
can take advantage of this flaw to cause a denial of service.


Shi Lei discovered that RxRPC Kerberos 5 ticket handling code does
not properly verify metadata, leading to information disclosure,
denial of service or potentially execution of arbitrary code.


Fan Wu and Shixiong Zhao discovered a race condition between inotify
events and VFS rename operations allowing an unprivileged local
attacker to cause a denial of service or escalate privileges.


A buffer overflow flaw in the Broadcom IEEE802.11n PCIe SoftMAC WLAN
driver could allow a local user to cause kernel memory corruption,
leading to a denial of service or potentially privilege escalation.


An integer overflow vulnerability in the ip6_find_1stfragopt()
function was found allowing a local attacker with privileges to open
raw sockets to cause a denial of service.


Murray McAllister discovered that the DRM driver for VMware virtual
GPUs does not properly initialize memory, potentially allowing a
local attacker to obtain sensitive information from uninitialized
kernel memory via a crafted ioctl call.


Li Qiang discovered a memory leak flaw within the VirtIO GPU driver
resulting in denial of service (memory consumption).

CVE-2017-10911 / XSA-216

Anthony Perard of Citrix discovered an information leak flaw in Xen
blkif response handling, allowing a malicious unprivileged guest to
obtain sensitive information from the host or other guests.


It was discovered that the mq_notify() function does not set the
sock pointer to NULL upon entry into the retry logic. An attacker
can take advantage of this flaw during a user-space close of a
Netlink socket to cause a denial of service or potentially cause
other impact.


It was discovered that argument and environment pointers are not
taken properly into account to the imposed size restrictions on
arguments and environmental strings passed through
RLIMIT_STACK/RLIMIT_INFINITY. A local attacker can take advantage of
this flaw in conjunction with other flaws to execute arbitrary code.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems will be fixed in
a subsequent DSA.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
version 4.9.30-2+deb9u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your linux packages.
