    =====================================================================
    
    1. Summary:
    
    An update for patch is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.5
    Extended Update Support.
    
    Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
    of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
    which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability
    from the CVE link(s) in the References section.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ComputeNode EUS (v. 7.5) - x86_64

    3. Description:
    
    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).
    
    Security Fix(es):
    
    * patch: do_ed_script in pch.c does not block strings beginning with a !
    character (CVE-2018-20969)
    
    * patch: OS shell command injection when processing crafted patch files
    (CVE-2019-13638)
