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


* Improved fix for CVE-2019-0155: Privilege escalation in Intel i915 graphics

Missing zeroing of data used to disallow rogue i915 instructions could
make i915 driver vulnerable to CVE-2019-0155 on 64 bits systems.


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