Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2013-02-15 10:29:14 UTC
From $URL :

Eric Dumazet recently fixed a local DOS in commit 77c1090 "net: fix
infinite loop in __skb_recv_datagram()"? An unprivileged local user
can easily trigger this bug and lock-up the system.
Comment 1 Aaron Bauman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2018-04-04 18:30:07 UTC
There are no longer any 2.x or <3.8 kernels available in the repository with the exception of sys-kernel/xbox-sources which is unsupported by security.
