Description:

    Previous versions of the kernel package are vulnerable to a buffer     overflow in the cifs and ip_nat_snmp_basic modules which can allow     a remote denial of service or possible arbitrary code execution.     

    In addition, support has been added for newer Intel 10Gb Ethernet     adapters, and a bug which effects device ordering on certain Dell     and HP systems has been resolved.     

    A system reboot is required to resolve these issues.
