    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.
    
    Software Description:
    - linux: Linux kernel
    - linux-aws: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems

    - linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
    - linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2
    - linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Snapdragon processors
    - linux-gke-4.15: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
    - linux-hwe: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
    - linux-oem: Linux kernel for OEM processors
    - linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
    - linux-aws-hwe: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS-HWE) systems
    
    Details:
    
    USN-4017-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel for Ubuntu.
    Unfortunately, the update introduced a regression that interfered with
    networking applications that setup very low SO_SNDBUF values. This
    update fixes the problem.
    
    We apologize for the inconvenience.
    
    Jonathan Looney discovered that the Linux kernel could be coerced into
    segmenting responses into multiple TCP segments. A remote attacker could
    construct an ongoing sequence of requests to cause a denial of service.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:

    After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
    all the necessary changes.
    
    ATTENTION: Due to an unavoidable ABI change the kernel updates have
    been given a new version number, which requires you to recompile and
    reinstall all third party kernel modules you might have installed.
    Unless you manually uninstalled the standard kernel metapackages
    (e.g. linux-generic, linux-generic-lts-RELEASE, linux-virtual,
    linux-powerpc), a standard system upgrade will automatically perform
    this as well.
