INSTALLING THE UPDATES
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
* Missing Spectre v4 protection on late microcode updates.
A logic error when performing a late microcode update could result in
ignoring MSR writes to enable the SSBD mitigation.
Ksplice support is available at ksplice-support_ww at oracle.com.
