Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-2695-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security Fix: It was found that the Linux kernel's IPv6 implementation mishandled socket options. A local attacker could abuse concurrent access to the socket options to escalate their privileges, or cause a denial of service via a crafted sendmsg system call.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-2584-02 - The kernel-rt packages provide the Real Time Linux Kernel, which enables fine-tuning for systems with extremely high determinism requirements. Security Fix: It was found that the Linux kernel's IPv6 implementation mishandled socket options. A local attacker could abuse concurrent access to the socket options to escalate their privileges, or cause a denial of service via a crafted sendmsg system call.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3083-1
Posted Sep 19, 2016
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 3083-1 - Dmitry Vyukov discovered that the IPv6 implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly handle options data, including a use-after-free. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. It was discovered that a race condition existed when handling heartbeat- timeout events in the SCTP implementation of the Linux kernel. A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.
