Debian 8 Gets New Kernel Update, Five Vulnerabilities and a Regression Patched

Debian Security Advisory DSA-3616-1 was published on July 4, 2016, and it looks like, this time, the kernel update patches the long-term supported Linux 3.16 kernel packages of the current stable Debian GNU/Linux release, codenamed Jessie, to fix a total of 5 vulnerabilities that have been discovered upstream. Additionally, the Debian kernel developers have patched a regression that was introduced during last week’s major kernel update in the ebtables facility.
