The following security bugs were fixed:

– CVE-2017-15274: security/keys/keyctl.c in the Linux kernel did not
consider the case of a NULL payload in conjunction with a nonzero length
value, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL
pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted add_key or keyctl system
call (bsc#1045327).
– CVE-2017-1000251: The native Bluetooth stack in the Linux Kernel (BlueZ)
was vulnerable to a stack overflow vulnerability in the processing of

kernel space (bsc#1057950).
