Debian Project Releases Linux Security Updates to Patch Latest Intel CPU Flaws


The Debian Project released new Linux kernel security updates for its supported Debian GNU/Linux releases to address the latest vulnerabilities affecting Intel CPU microarchitectures. As reported earlier this week, four new security vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel and with an impact on Intel CPUs, namely CVE-2019-11135, CVE-2018-12207, CVE-2019-0154 and CVE-2019-0155, which may lead to privilege escalation, information leak, as well as denial of service.

The Debian Project recommends all users of the Debian GNU/Linux 9 “Stretch” and Debian GNU/Linux 10 “Buster” operating systems to update their installations as soon as possible to the new Linux kernel versions, namely 4.9.189-3+deb9u2 for Debian Stretch and 4.19.67-2+deb10u2 for Debian Buster.
