    Debian Bug     : 828914
    
    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that
    may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or information
    leaks.
    
    CVE-2014-9904
    
        It was discovered that the snd_compress_check_input function used in
        the ALSA subsystem does not properly check for an integer overflow,
        allowing a local user to cause a denial of service.
    
    CVE-2016-5728
    
        Pengfei Wang discovered a race condition in the MIC VOP driver that
        could allow a local user to obtain sensitive information from kernel
        memory or cause a denial of service.
    
    CVE-2016-5828
    
        Cyril Bur and Michael Ellerman discovered a flaw in the handling of
        Transactional Memory on powerpc systems allowing a local user to
        cause a denial of service (kernel crash) or possibly have
        unspecified other impact, by starting a transaction, suspending it,
        and then calling any of the exec() class system calls.
    
    CVE-2016-5829
    
        A heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability was found in the hiddev
        driver, allowing a local user to cause a denial of service or,
        potentially escalate their privileges.
    
    CVE-2016-6130
    
        Pengfei Wang discovered a flaw in the S/390 character device drivers
        potentially leading to information leak with /dev/sclp.
    
    Additionally this update fixes a regression in the ebtables facility
    (#828914) that was introduced in DSA-3607-1.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.16.7-ckt25-2+deb8u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your linux packages.
