    Summary
    =======
    
    The package linux-zen before version 5.0.12.zen2-1 is vulnerable to
    arbitrary code execution.
    
    Resolution
    ==========
    
    Upgrade to 5.0.12.zen2-1.
    
    # pacman -Syu "linux-zen>=5.0.12.zen2-1"
    
    The problem has been fixed upstream in version 5.0.12.zen2.
    
    Workaround
    ==========
    
    None.
    
    Description
    ===========
    
    udp_gro_receive_segment in net/ipv4/udp_offload.c in the Linux kernel
    5.x through 5.0.11 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
    (slab-out-of-bounds memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified
    other impact via UDP packets with a 0 payload, because of mishandling
    of padded packets, aka the "GRO packet of death" issue.
    
    Impact
    ======
    
    A remote attacker is able to cause a denial of service possibly leading
    to remote code execution by sending UDP packets with a special payload.
