Public bug reported:

I have an Intel 7260 WiFi card in my desktop (lspci output: 09:00.0
Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 7260 (rev bb)), running
18.04. All the way since 17.04 I have experienced random freezes, where
the entire system would be unresponsive, I was unable to Ctrl+Alt+F1 to
a different console, and I couldn't connect to it via ssh. After
upgrading to 17.10 (and a fresh install of 17.10), and subsequently
upgrading to 18.04, the issue intensified, appearing at least hourly,
often quicker than that, and only a hard reset would let me access my
system again. The issue is also present in Linux Mint 18.3. Freezes
could happen at any time, regardless of usage (or just idling).

After getting a tip that this might be caused by the WiFi card, I looked
at the provided firmware from Intel's site, and compared the files to
the files present in /lib/firmware/. The file provided by Intel for my
specific card is iwlwifi-7260-14.ucode, but the files present in the
folder were the numbers 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 13, 16, and 17. Downloading the
firmware from Intel, and adding the -14 file to the folder solved the
issue of the screen freezing, and the issue has not appeared for the ten
hours I've been running since applying the fix.
