CentOS kernel update advisory

Just making everyone aware of a new advisory affecting some Xeon chips and the latest CentOS kernel. We are seeing mostly E3-1230 v5 systems impacted right now.

CVE Info: cve-details
Redhat Security Advisory: https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2020:2432

You might want to hold off on any updates for the time being.


The issue seems more related to the intel microcode update, not specifically the kernel update.

We have a blog article on the subject at Latest Updates Impacting Some Red Hat / CentOS Servers if anyone ends up experiencing similar issues.


Cheers! Thanks for sharing!
