Last updated on DECEMBER 28, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Exadata Storage Server Software - Version and later
Linux x86-64


Customers running security scanning tools against Exadata machines receive vulnerability reports which may list Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE). This document addresses how to research identified Oracle Linux CVEs and determine the Exadata release where the issue is resolved/mitigated.  Some of the more common Oracle Linux CVEs are documented in Doc ID 1405320.1. However, it is not feasible to maintain a list of all CVEs.

The purpose of this note is to be used in conjunction with Doc ID 1405320.1 and assist customers in researching individual CVEs.

Note: CVEs, once mitigated, are identified/reviewed for the next monthly release.  It is important for customers to apply releases in a timely manner.
