http://issues.rpath.com/browse/RPL-457

Description:
In previous kernel versions, systems that use the SCTP protocol
are vulnerable to remote denial of service attacks including
remotely-triggered kernel crashes, and all systems are vulnerable
to local denial of service including locally-triggered kernel
hangs.

This update requires a reboot to implement the fixes.
