> Some vulnerabilities have been reported in the Linux Kernel, which
> potentially can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain
> security restrictions or cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
> 1) NULL pointer dereferences within net/netfilter/nfnetlink_log.c can
> potentially be exploited to cause a kernel panic by sending specially
> crafted packets to a vulnerable system.
> 2) An error exists within conntrack when assembling fragmented IPv6
> packets. This can potentially be exploited to bypass certain rulesets
> that accept ESTABLISHED packets early.
