Synopsis: ELSA-2013-0847-1 can now be patched using Ksplice

Users with Oracle Linux Premier Support can now use Ksplice to patch
against the latest Oracle Security Advisory, ELSA-2013-0847-1.


We recommend that all users of Ksplice Uptrack on EL 5 install these

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 action.

Alternatively, you can install these updates by running:

# /usr/sbin/uptrack-upgrade -y

The only security fix in this advisory, CVE-2013-0153 only updates the
Xen hypervisor which is not part of the Linux kernel.  Customers running
Xen hosts will need to reboot to get the latest hypervisor updates.


* Data corruption on NFSv3/v2 short reads.

Reading small amounts of data using NFSv3/v2 would cause data corruption in
the read data.


Ksplice support is available at ksplice-support_ww at oracle.com.
