Synopsis: ELSA-2017-3315-1 can now be patched using Ksplice
CVEs: CVE-2017-1000380

Users with Oracle Linux Premier Support can now use Ksplice to patch
against the latest Oracle Linux Security Advisory, ELSA-2017-3315-1.


We recommend that all users of Ksplice Uptrack running Oracle Enhanced
RHCK 7 install these updates.

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-2017-1000380: Information leak in the ALSA timer subsystem.

Multiple vulnerabilities in the ALSA timer subsystem could lead to a race
condition between a read and IO control system call, disclosing
uninitialized memory to userspace.  A local, unprivileged user could use
this flaw to gain information about the running kernel in order to
facilitate an attack.


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