The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system.
* A race condition flaw was found in the N_HLDC Linux kernel driver when
accessing n_hdlc.tbuf list that can lead to double free. A local, unprivileged
user able to set the HDLC line discipline on the tty device could use this flaw
to increase their privileges on the system. (CVE-2017-2636, Important)
* A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's implementation of seq_file where a
local attacker could manipulate memory in the put() function pointer. This could
lead to memory corruption and possible privileged escalation. (CVE-2016-7910, Moderate)
