    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that 
    may lead to a denial of service, information leaks or privilege 
    escalation:
    
    CVE-2014-0196
    
        Jiri Slaby discovered a race condition in the pty layer, which could
        lead to denial of service or privilege escalation.
    
    CVE-2014-1737 / CVE-2014-1738
    
        Matthew Daley discovered that missing input sanitising in the
        FDRAWCMD ioctl and an information leak could result in privilege
        escalation.
    
    CVE-2014-2851
    
        Incorrect reference counting in the ping_init_sock() function allows
        denial of service or privilege escalation.
    
    CVE-2014-3122
    
        Incorrect locking of memory can result in local denial of service.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.2.57-3+deb7u1. This update also fixes a regression in the isci
    driver and suspend problems with certain AMD CPUs (introduced in the
    updated kernel from the Wheezy 7.5 point release).
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your linux packages.
