Developer Tutorial: Live patching Debian 10 Linux kernel with Kpatch

Feb 18, 2020 2:28:00 PM / by Paul Jacobs posted in Developer Blog


Live patching is a way of updating a Linux kernel without interruption.

Because kernel updates don’t take effect until the system is rebooted, Linux kernel live patching is most commonly used to patch severe Linux kernel vulnerabilities without rebooting servers.

Aside from improved service continuity and uptime, organizations with large server fleets also use live patching to avoid the administrative overhead associated with the coordination and planning needed to reboot multiple systems.

This tutorial will show how to use Kpatch to change the behavior of a running Debian 10 kernel without stopping it, changing the contents of /proc/uptime (and the uptime command) so that the system’s reported uptime is 10 years greater.

At the end of January 2020, another speculative execution vulnerability was found in Intel processors. Any modern Intel CPU built before October 2018 is likely vulnerable to a discovered hardware issue that could allow attackers to leak sensitive data from the OS kernel, co-resident virtual machines, and even from Intel's secured SGX enclave.

New KernelCare+ patches Linux libraries and kernels

Feb 10, 2020 4:55:00 PM / by Paul Jacobs posted in KernelCarePlus


You want more—more protection for business-critical applications running on Linux, applications that depend on glibc and OpenSSL.

As with the kernel, vulnerabilities in glibc or OpenSSL can’t wait to be patched.

That’s why, last November, we announced KernelCare+, an enhanced variant of KernelCare, one that patches vulnerabilities in essential user space libraries in addition to those in the Linux kernel. And as with KernelCare’s Linux kernel live patching, KernelCare+ updates applications without affecting their operational state—no restarts, no reboots.
