Greg Kroah-Hartman has announced the release of the 4.4.174 stable kernel. The patches went out
for review
on February 7; the kernel contains a backport of a fix
for the
FragmentSmack denial-of-service vulnerability. “Many thanks to Ben Hutchings for this release, it’s pretty much just his
work here in doing the backporting of networking fixes to help resolve
“FragmentSmack” (i.e. CVE-2018-5391).
” As usual, users of the
kernel series should upgrade.
