If any dependencies of the package (or packages) you update have updates available themselves, then they are updated too.
Additional exploits for other architectures are also known to exist.
These include IBM System Z, POWER8 (Big Endian and Little Endian), and POWER9 (Little Endian).
Thanks Lenard, Since Iam new to linux, I would immensely appreciate it if you could please tell me the procedure to use "createrepo" to build a CD/DVD with patches and to install these patches on servers.
is the Red Hat package manager that is able to query for information about available packages, fetch packages from repositories, install and uninstall them, and update an entire system to the latest available version.
The attacks described in this article abuse the speculative execution capability of modern high-performance microprocessors.
Modern microprocessors implement a design optimization known as “Out-of-Order” (Oo O) execution, meaning the microprocessor will begin to execute independent instructions as soon as their data dependencies become available (so-called “data flow” model) rather than always executing instructions in the literal order provided by the programmer through their application binary.
The illusion of a sequential execution is maintained within the processor by means of various internal reordering structures that buffer these intermediate execution states of the processor and present the in-order results.
Out-of-Order (Oo O) Execution was originally invented by Robert Tomasulo in 1967 for use in the early IBM mainframe systems.
