Synopsis: ELSA-2019-0415 can now be patched using Ksplice
CVEs: CVE-2018-10902

Users with Oracle Linux Premier Support can now use Ksplice to patch
against the latest Oracle kernel update, ELSA-2019-0415.


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-2018-10902: Privilege escalation in ALSA rawmidi ioctl.

Race conditions in the SNDRV_RAWMIDI_IOCTL_PARAMS ioctl code could result
in memory corruption.  This could be exploited to cause a privilege
escalation by a local user with permissions to access the MIDI device.


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