Synopsis: FEDORA-2017-9ea11e444d can now be patched using Ksplice
CVEs: CVE-2017-1000405

Systems running Fedora 26 can now use Ksplice to patch against the
latest Fedora kernel update, FEDORA-2017-9ea11e444d.


We recommend that all users of Ksplice Uptrack running Fedora 26
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-2017-1000405: Privilege escalation when writing into a Transparent Huge Page.

A logic error in internal Transparent Huge Page handling of the kernel
could let an attacker overwrite read-only data and escalate privileges.


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