Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Kernel for Raspberry Pi 2 Updated to Fix Eight Vulnerabilities

One day later, on August 30, 2016, Canonical published a new security advisory to inform the Ubuntu Linux community about the availability of an updated kernel for the Raspberry Pi 2 port of the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system, patching the same eight vulnerabilities discovered in the desktop and server kernel packages. If you didn’t read our previous report, we can tell you now that among the patched kernel security flaws are an information leak in Linux kernel’s RDS (Reliable Datagram Sockets) implementation, a flaw in the TCP implementation, a race condition in the MIC VOP driver, as well as a heap-based buffer overflow in the USB HID driver.
