Issues have been found in Linux kernel's DCCP implementation, the dvb-usb-lmedm04 media driver, the hdpvr media driver, the Extended BPF verifier, the netfilter subsystem, the netlink subsystem, the xt_osf module, the USB core, and the IPv4 raw socket implementation. In addition, Linux kernel's HMAC implementation, KEYS subsystem, KVM implementation for Intel processors, Bluetooth subsystem, and the Extended BPF verifier were also affected in some way. Debian Project recommends disabling use of the Extended BPF verifier for unprivileged users (sysctl kernel.unprivileged_bpf_disabled=1).
