[slackware-security] kernel (SSA:2018-016-01)

 

New kernel packages are available for Slackware 14.0 and 14.2 to fix

security issues.

 

 

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:

+--------------------------+

patches/packages/linux-4.4.111/*: Upgraded.

This kernel includes mitigations for the Spectre (variant 2) and Meltdown

speculative side channel attacks.

Be sure to upgrade your initrd after upgrading the kernel packages.

If you use lilo to boot your machine, be sure lilo.conf points to the correct

kernel and initrd and run lilo as root to update the bootloader.

If you use elilo to boot your machine, you should run eliloconfig to copy the

kernel and initrd to the EFI System Partition.

+++ ATTENTION +++

 

Slackware updates postings are now suspended. Why? Well, because no one reads them and I'm lazy and don't feel like posting them anymore.

 

We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming already in progress...
