https://issues.rpath.com/browse/RPL-524

Description:
Previous versions of the kernel package are subject to several
vulnerabilities. Certain malformed UDF filesystems can cause the
system to crash (denial of service). Malformed CDROM firmware or
USB storage devices (such as USB keys) could cause system crash
(denial of service), and if they were intentionally malformed, can
cause arbitrary code to run with elevated privileges. In addition,
the SCTP protocol is subject to a remote system crash (denial of
service) attack, but rPath Linux does not include the tools required
to configure the SCTP protocol, so rPath Linux is not configured
by default to be vulnerable to this attack.

This update requires a system reboot to implement the fixes.
