[SECURITY] [DLA 412-1] linux-2.6 security update

Package        : linux-2.6
Version        : 2.6.32-48squeeze19
CVE ID         : CVE-2015-7566 CVE-2015-8767 CVE-2015-8785 CVE-2016-0723 

This update fixes the CVEs described below.


    Ralf Spenneberg of OpenSource Security reported that the visor
    driver crashes when a specially crafted USB device without bulk-out
    endpoint is detected.


    An SCTP denial-of-service was discovered which can be triggered by a
    local attacker during a heartbeat timeout event after the 4-way


    It was discovered that local users permitted to write to a file on
    a FUSE filesystem could cause a denial of service (unkillable loop
    in the kernel).


    A use-after-free vulnerability was discovered in the TIOCGETD ioctl.
    A local attacker could use this flaw for denial-of-service.


    Andy Lutomirski discovered a race condition in flushing of the TLB
    when switching tasks.  On an SMP system this could possibly lead to
    a crash, information leak or privilege escalation.

For the oldoldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been
fixed in version 2.6.32-48squeeze19.  Additionally, this version
includes upstream stable update  This is the final update
to the linux-2.6 package for squeeze.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems will be fixed

For the stable distribution (jessie), CVE-2015-7566, CVE-2015-8767 and
CVE-2016-0723 were fixed in linux version 3.16.7-ckt20-1+deb8u3 and
the remaining problems will be fixed soon.
