The fix has been sent upstream , whether all related issues are fixed by the two proposed patches (see whole thread at ) is still under discussion. Not affected: - Upstream: stable kernels from kernel.org, such as 4.10.x Affected: - Upstream: all current 4.11 RCs (rc1-rc7) are affected. - Ubuntu 17.04: commit 1045ba77a ("net sched actions: Add support for user cookies") which introduced the problematic code was backported to Ubuntu 17.04's "Ubuntu-4.10.0-15.17" kernel, which is affected. - Proxmox VE 5.0 Beta: the Proxmox VE kernel 4.10.5-1 which was based on Ubuntu-4.10.0-15.17 was affected, the subsequently released PVE kernel 4.10.8-1 contains the fix from . The current PVE stable release 4.4 is not affected. Thanks to Wolfang Bumiller for analysis and proposed fixes. Thanks to "Ivensiya" <ivensiya@...il.com> for the initial bug report that lead to the discovery. 1: https://www.cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=2017-7979 2: https://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=149200746116365 3: https://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=149251041420195 4: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1682368 5: https://bugzilla.proxmox.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1351
