For anyone stumbling accross CVE-2017-6074 and thinking about whether Armbian installations are affected or not: we're most probably not since CONFIG_IP_DCCP is enabled as module only on some kernels:

root@armbian:/var/git/Armbian/lib/config/kernel # grep 'CONFIG_IP_DCCP=' *
linux-cubox-default.config:CONFIG_IP_DCCP=m
linux-cubox-dev.config:CONFIG_IP_DCCP=m
linux-mvebu-default.config:CONFIG_IP_DCCP=m
linux-mvebu-next.config:CONFIG_IP_DCCP=m
linux-sun8i-dev.config:CONFIG_IP_DCCP=m
linux-sunxi-dev.config:CONFIG_IP_DCCP=m
linux-sunxi-next.config:CONFIG_IP_DCCP=m
root@armbian:/var/git/Armbian/lib/config/kernel #
