Canonical announced a few hours ago the availability of a new security update for the Raspberry Pi 2 kernel packages of the Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) operating system, which patches a total of five newly discovered vulnerabilities.
If you’re using Ubuntu 16.10 on a Raspberry Pi 2 device, you are urged to update the kernel package to version linux-image-4.8.0-1024-raspi2 4.8.0-1024.27, which is now available for installation in the stable software repositories of the operating system. To update, simply run the “sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade” command in a terminal emulator.
