Synopsis: ELBA-2015-3099 can now be patched using Ksplice

Users with Oracle Linux Premier Support can now use Ksplice to patch
against the latest Oracle kernel update, ELBA-2015-3099.


We recommend that all users of Ksplice Uptrack on EL 7 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


* Multiple use-after-frees in Xen netback during error handling.

Incorrect error handling could result in multiple use-after-free
conditions transmitting packets.  This could result in a kernel crash.


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