      Description

      Some linux kernel versions (including, but not limited to 3.13.0-121-generic and 4.4.0-81-generic) are known to contain an incorrect fix for a linux kernel stack overflow issue (See CVE-2017-1000364). The incorrect fix can trigger crashes in the Java Virtual Machine. Upgrading the kernel to a version that includes the corrected fix addresses the problem.
