An update that fixes two vulnerabilities is now available.

Description:

This update for the Linux Kernel 3.12.55-52_42 fixes several issues.

The following security bugs were fixed:
- CVE-2016-5195: A local privilege escalation using MAP_PRIVATE was fixed,
which is reportedly exploited in the wild (bsc#1004419).
- CVE-2016-4997: The compat IPT_SO_SET_REPLACE and IP6T_SO_SET_REPLACE
setsockopt implementations in the netfilter subsystem in the Linux
kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of
service (memory corruption) by leveraging in-container root access to
provide a crafted offset value that triggers an unintended decrement
(bsc#986377).
