Description:

   This update for the Linux Kernel 3.12.60-52_63 fixes several issues.

   The following security bugs were fixed:
   - CVE-2016-9806: Race condition in the netlink_dump function in
     net/netlink/af_netlink.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to
     cause a denial of service (double free) or possibly have unspecified
     other impact via a crafted application that made sendmsg system calls,
     leading to a free operation associated with a new dump that started
     earlier than anticipated (bsc#1017589).
