New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

This plugin has been deprecated.

Description

Description of changes:

[2.6.39-400.297.4.el6uek]
- mm: larger stack guard gap, between vmas (Hugh Dickins) [Orabug: 26326145] {CVE-2017-1000364}

This plugin has been deprecated because the recently released Oracle Linux 5 and 6, ELSA-2017-3592, does not fix any security problems relevant to already running systems. You do not need to take any action to update your systems.
