The Oracle Ksplice development team has determined that mitigations for
the Intel processor design flaws leading to vulnerabilities
CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5754, and CVE-2017-5715 cannot be applied using
zero-downtime (Ksplice) patching. Oracle therefore recommends that
customers install the required updates from their systems and hardware
vendors as they become available and reboot these machines upon applying
these patches.


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