The kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system: memory allocation, process allocation, device input and output, etc. Problem description: kernel < TSL 2.2 > - New Upstream. - SECURITY Fix: A security issue has been reported in Linux kernel caused due to an error in drivers/isdn/i4l/isdn_ppp.c as the "isdn_ppp_ccp_reset_alloc_state()" function never initialises an event timer before scheduling it with the "add_timer()" function. - The mincore function in kernel does not properly lock access to user space, which has unspecified impact and attack vectors, possibly related to a deadlock. - Another vulnerability has been reported in linux kernel caused due to a boundary error within the handling of incoming CAPI messages in net/bluetooth/cmtp/capi.c. This can be exploited to overwrite certain Kernel data structures.
