Se ha liberado una actualización en el kernel (core de Sistema operativo basado en Linux) importante.

Se solucionan las siguientes vulnerabilidades.

  • Kernel: KVM: potential use-after-free via kvm_ioctl_create_device() (CVE-2019-6974)
  • Kernel: KVM: nVMX: use-after-free of the hrtimer for emulation of the preemption timer (CVE-2019-7221)
