Statement

This vulnerability in jackson-databind involves exploiting CVE-2018-1088 against slf4j, which was fixed in Red Hat products through the errata referenced at https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/cve-2018-8088. Applications that link only slf4j versions including that fix are not vulnerable to this vulnerability.

Red Hat Satellite 6 is not affected by this issue, since its candlepin component doesn't bundle slf4j-ext jar.
