Users with Oracle Linux Premier Support can now use Ksplice to patch
against this Security Advisory.

We recommend that all users of  Oracle Linux 5 install these updates.

Users of Ksplice Uptrack can install these updates by running :

# /usr/sbin/uptrack-upgrade -y
On systems that have "autoinstall = yes" in /etc/uptrack/uptrack.conf,
these updates will be installed automatically and you do not need to
take any additional action.

Description of changes:

* CVE-2012-1583: use-after-free in IPv6 tunneling.

A flaw in the IPv6 tunnel handling could allow a remote attacker to
trigger a use-after-free or double free allowing a remote user to
trigger a denial-of-service.


* Kernel crash in Ethernet bridging netfilter module.

The use of uninitialized memory in the Ethernet bridging module could
result in the incorrect handling of frames and a kernel panic.


* Unresponsive I/O using QLA2XXX driver.

Faults in the QLA2XXX driver and HBA firmware could result in
unresponsive I/O during storage fault testing.
