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.
