Recent Patch for Ubuntu and Red Hat Issue | All Regions
Beginning on 21 March 2017, engineers noted an increase in customer contacts in response to recent patch updates released for Ubuntu 12.04, 14.04, 16.04, as well as Red Hat 6 and 7, which have caused some customer applications to break once the update is installed.
To address these issues, restart any web service applications that use the affected library. To ensure that all existing processes get the new version, a full server reboot is recommended.
Ubuntu has issued multiple updates for this issue via https://www.ubuntu.com/usn/usn-3239-1/ and https://www.ubuntu.com/usn/usn-3239-2/. Customers that restarted services to compensate for the USN-3239-1 update may need restart services once again to compensate for the USN-3239-2 update.
Red Hat has communicated this issue through https://access.redhat.com/security/vulnerabilities/2168451.
If you have any further questions, please contact a member of your support team.
