    3. Description:
    
    The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux
    operating system.
    
    Security Fix(es):
    
    * An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's
    networking subsystem processed TCP Selective Acknowledgment (SACK)
    segments. While processing SACK segments, the Linux kernel's socket buffer
    (SKB) data structure becomes fragmented. Each fragment is about TCP maximum
    segment size (MSS) bytes. To efficiently process SACK blocks, the Linux
    kernel merges multiple fragmented SKBs into one, potentially overflowing
    the variable holding the number of segments. A remote attacker could use
    this flaw to crash the Linux kernel by sending a crafted sequence of SACK
    segments on a TCP connection with small value of TCP MSS, resulting in a
    denial of service (DoS). (CVE-2019-11477)
    
    * Kernel: tcp: excessive resource consumption while processing SACK blocks
    allows remote denial of service (CVE-2019-11478)
    
    * Kernel: tcp: excessive resource consumption for TCP connections with low
    MSS allows remote denial of service (CVE-2019-11479)
    
    For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS
    score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE
    page(s) listed in the References section.
