      Description

      Security Fix(es):

      • Linux kernel built with the 802.1Q/802.1ad VLAN(CONFIG_VLAN_8021Q) OR Virtual
        eXtensible Local Area Network(CONFIG_VXLAN) with Transparent Ethernet
        Bridging(TEB) GRO support, is vulnerable to a stack overflow issue. It could
        occur while receiving large packets via GRO path as an unlimited recursion could
        unfold in both VLAN and TEB modules leading to a stack corruption in the kernel.
        (CVE-2016-7039, Important)

      Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

      1375944 - CVE-2016-7039 kernel: remotely triggerable unbounded recursion in the vlan gro code leading to a kernel crash
