new linux-kernel vulnerability in dccp protocol in kernel (cve-2017-6074). some investigation on my jolla1- $ cat /boot/config- | grep DCCP shows CONFIG_NF_CT_PROTO_DCCP=y # CONFIG_NETFILTER_XT_MATCH_DCCP is not set CONFIG_NF_NAT_PROTO_DCCP=y # CONFIG_IP_DCCP is not set so dccp is active... please fix this with available patch

@lpr Thanks for reporting. Added bz ticket for this.

@spiiroin at least in jolla mobiles this vulnerability seems not to be present according to openwall (CONFIG_IP_DCCP needs to be set, too) but for jolla-partners & mer-servers I can't tell... so cve-2016-8655 and cve-2015-3288 should be in focus but the easy three-line-patch for this should be added to sources.
