Package        : linux
CVE ID         : CVE-2014-0196 CVE-2014-1737 CVE-2014-1738 CVE-2014-2851 

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that 
may lead to a denial of service, information leaks or privilege 


    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


    Incorrect reference counting in the ping_init_sock() function allows
    denial of service or privilege escalation.


    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.
