Priority
Description
drivers/firewire/net.c in the Linux kernel before 4.8.7, in certain unusual
hardware configurations, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code
via crafted fragmented packets.
Ubuntu-Description
Eyal Itkin discovered that the IP over IEEE 1394 (FireWire) implementation
in the Linux kernel contained a buffer overflow when handling fragmented
packets. A remote attacker could use this to possibly execute arbitrary
code with administrative privileges.
Notes

not supported on the Ubuntu Touch 14.10 and earlier preview kernels
linux-lts-saucy no longer receives official support
