Synopsis: ELSA-2016-3528 can now be patched using Ksplice
CVEs: CVE-2016-0774

Users with Oracle Linux Premier Support can now use Ksplice to patch
against the latest Oracle Security Advisory, ELSA-2016-3528.


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


* CVE-2016-0774: Information leak in the pipe system call on failed atomic read.

The fix for CVE-2015-1805 incorrectly kept buffer offset and length in sync
on a failed atomic read, leading to piper buffer state corruption.  A
local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial-of-service
or leak kernel memory to userspace.


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