Users with Oracle Linux Premier Support can now use Ksplice to patch

We recommend that all users of Ksplice Uptrack running UEKR4 4.1.12 on
OL6 and OL7 install these updates.

On systems that have "autoinstall = yes" in /etc/uptrack/uptrack.conf,

# /usr/sbin/uptrack-upgrade -y


* CVE-2017-1000112: Privilege escalation using the UDP Fragmentation Offload (UFO) code.

Multiple missing checks on headers length when using UDP Fragmentation
Offload (UFO) protocol while sending packets could lead to out-of-bounds
accesses. A local attacker with CAP_NET_RAW capability, or on a system
with unprivileged namespace enabled, could use this flaw to cause a
denial-of-service or execute arbitrary code.

* CVE-2017-7542: Buffer overflow when parsing IPV6 fragments header.

An incorrect data type when parsing IPV6 fragments header could lead to
a buffer overflow and to an infinite loop. A remote attacker could use
this flaw to cause a denial-of-service.


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