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-2018-13405: Permissions bypass when creating file in SGID directory.

Creating an executable file in an SGID directory can result in the file
having the group ownership of the directory. This can be exploited to
elevate privileges if the file is created in a directory owned by a
privileged group.


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