Synopsis: 3.10.0-1160.25.1.el7 can now be patched using Ksplice
CVEs: CVE-2021-20261

Users with Oracle Linux Premier Support can now use Ksplice to patch
against the latest Oracle kernel update, 3.10.0-1160.25.1.el7.


We recommend that all users of Ksplice Uptrack running RHCK 7 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

A missing error handling in the Floppy Disk Drive Controller driver
could lead to a race condition and memory corruption. A local,
privileged user could use this flaw for a denial-of-service.


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