CentOS Errata and Security Advisory CESA-2019:2033

The patch program applies diff files to originals. The diff command is used to compare an original to a changed file. Diff lists the changes made to the file. A person who has the original file can then use the patch command with the diff file to add the changes to their original file (patching the file).

  • patch: Out-of-bounds access in pch_write_line function in pch.c (CVE-2016-10713)
