Description:

   This update for the Linux Kernel 3.12.61-52_122 fixes several issues.

   The following security issue was fixed:

   - CVE-2017-15649: net/packet/af_packet.c in the Linux kernel allowed local
     users to gain privileges via crafted system calls that trigger
     mishandling of packet_fanout data structures, because of a race
     condition (involving fanout_add and packet_do_bind) that leads to a
     use-after-free, a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-6346
     (bsc#1064392)
