How to protect your Red Hat Enterprise Linux server?

For Red Hat Enterprise Linux users, there is a way to protect their systems against this new vulnerability released by Red Hat kernel team. First, you need to make sure your kernel is up-to-date with the latest versions. If you are using "yum" command line tool, you can use the following command to update your kernel:
yum update kernel
If your system is already up to date with the latest versions of both kernels as well as updates for other operating systems installed on your system, then there is no need for this step.
