Description:

    Previous versions of the kernel package contain multiple     vulnerabilities, the most serious of which can allow an unprivileged     user to cause a denial of service.     

    In addition, an issue which made the kernel unbootable as a guest in     Microsoft Virtual Server has been resolved.     

    A system reboot is required to resolve these issues.
