Synopsis: ELSA-2015-1042-1 can now be patched using Ksplice
CVEs: CVE-2015-1805

Users with Oracle Linux Premier Support can now use Ksplice to patch
against the latest Oracle Security Advisory, ELSA-2015-1042-1.


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


* CVE-2015-1805: Memory corruption in handling of userspace pipe I/O vector.

Pipe I/O vector handling functions didn't handle failure of atomic accesses
correctly. This would allow a local unprivileged user to crash the system.


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