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.
