Title: SOFTWARE PATCH FIX BASED ON CHECKSUMS
Abstract:
Various examples provide for solutions relating to a multi-base software patch. In particular, solutions may generate a single-base software patch that applies a fix to a first version of a software and, based on that single-base software patch, generate a multi-base software patch that can apply the fix to either the first version of the software or a second version of the software. To facilitate this, the multi-base software patch can include logic that verifies a checksum of a corresponding software module in each of the first version of the software and the second version of the software before applying the fix to either.
