Ubuntu 17.10

Looks like Ubuntu 17..10 will be released on October 19,2017, it will have linux kernel 4.13 with a fix to the vulerbility to CVE-2017-1000251. This fix was placed as High priority because the vulnerbility, which has been in the linux kernel since 3.3, affects the bluetooth capibilities in the BlueZ that could allow code execution from remote access into the kernel space. I need to find out if this will be patched in 14.04 and 16.04 LTS versions.
