Thank you. Good to know. I was hoping it would be 4.12, but a new hardware purchase can be postponed until 4.14.

These latest kernels include a mitigation for the stack-clash vulnerability that's been all over the tech press this week, so definitely worth updating to, but I'm not sure this particular vulnerability deserves the "Sky is falling" portrayal it's been getting in some quarters.

3,18.59 and CVE Lists for Today's Kernels

All --

Except for Linux 3.18.59, the following list duplicates the kernel source and ChangeLogs listed by cwizardone in his post earlier today.

But when I checked the output of my Q&D `get-latest-kernel-list-for-LQ.sh` script, it does show some new CVE's in the ChangeLogs and I thought some of you might be interested.

Anyhow, here is the output for the Kernels released today ( I removed 4.1.42 which I posted earlier but which contains no CVEs )

CVE-2017-1000365 seems particularly 'interesting' on the NVD Site...

Handy Links:
Code:
stable:    4.11.8        Source  ChangeLog [CVE] 2017-06-29
longterm:  4.9.35        Source  ChangeLog [CVE] 2017-06-29 ( Slackware-current )
longterm:  4.4.75        Source  ChangeLog [CVE] 2017-06-29 ( Slackware-14.2 )
longterm:  3.18.59 [EOL] Source  ChangeLog [CVE] 2017-06-29
CVE References:

ChangeLog-4.11.8 references CVE-2017-1000365, CVE-2017-7482 and CVE-2017-7518.

ChangeLog-4.9.35 references CVE-2017-1000365, CVE-2017-7482.

ChangeLog-4.4.75 references CVE-2017-1000365, CVE-2017-7482.

ChangeLog-3.18.59 references CVE-2017-1000365, CVE-2017-7482.

Check for the Latest Updates at www.kernel.org.

Anyhow, sorry about the noise ...

Thank you aaazen.

Linux 4.12 has some interesting new features.

There is a pretty good summary on lwn.net: The 4.12 kernel is out

And another on phoronix.com: What Excites Me The Most About The Linux 4.12 Kernel
