Description:
Previous versions of the kernel package have several vulnerabilities
resolved in this release. The most severe could allow local users
to read or write kernel memeory.

In addition, a bug that caused the kernel Out of Memory handler to
kill processes on systems with 4 or more GiB of RAM and 2 or more CPUs
has been fixed.

A system reboot is required to resolve these issues.
