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

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-2018-5390: Denial-of-service when receiving misordered TCP packets.

packets, causing the local server to waste time processing its local
data structures and resulting in an effective denial-of-service.
