Synopsis: ELSA-2018-2846 can now be patched using Ksplice
CVEs: CVE-2018-14634

Users with Oracle Linux Premier Support can now use Ksplice to patch
against the latest Oracle Linux Security Advisory, ELSA-2018-2846.


We recommend that all users of Ksplice Uptrack running RHCK 6 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-2018-14634: Privilege escalation in ELF executables.

An integer overflow in the argument setup for a new ELF executable could
result in attacker controlled corruption of the user stack when
executing a SUID binary.  A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw
to gain superuser privileges.

Ksplice will not be providing a zero-downtime update for CVE-2018-5391,
customers needing mitigation against this vulnerability should
reboot into the latest kernel release.


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