Amazon Systems Manager Patch Manager now includes common vulnerability identifiers (CVE ID) in the description of missing patches identified in your fleet, across multiple Linux platforms. CVE IDs help you identify security notices applicable to vulnerabilities within your fleet and recommended patches.  

Systems Manager Patch Manager will now automatically start showing vulnerability identifiers as part of patch compliance for Amazon Linux, Amazon Linux 2, Oracle, CentOS, RHEL, and SUSE. To get started, view details of a managed instance in Systems Manager Managed Instances and choose the Patch tab.  

This feature is available in all Amazon Web Services Regions where Amazon Systems Manager is available, including in the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) region, operated by NWCD, and the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) region, operated by Sinnet. For more details, see Patch Manager in the Amazon Systems Manager User Guide. To learn more about Systems Manager features, see Systems Manager.
