Synopsis: ELBA-2018-4130 can now be patched using Ksplice
CVEs: CVE-2017-16939

Users with Oracle Linux Premier Support can now use Ksplice to patch
against the latest Oracle Linux Bug Fix Advisory, ELBA-2018-4130.


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,
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


* Incorrect error reporting for prctl(PR_SET_SPECULATION_CTRL).

A logic error when setting the PR_SET_SPECULATION_CTRL prctl() could
incorrectly report an error to the application despite toggling the
prctl correctly.

Orabug: 28144775
