Bug#818423: kfreebsd-10: CVE-2016-1883: Linux compatibility layer issetugid(2) system call vulnerability

Package: src:kfreebsd-10
Version: 10.1~svn274115-4+kbsd8u2

kfreebsd's Linux binary compatibility layer (linux.ko module) has a
programming error that could allow for privilege esclation to happen.
Although, this feature is not typically used by Debian GNU/kFreeBSD
unless the system administrator has enabled it.


This affects kfreebsd-10, and also kfreebsd-9 in wheezy.
