Description:
Previous versions of the kernel package have several vulnerabilities
resolved in this release. The most severe is a remotely triggerable
denial of service via carefully crafted TCP ACK packets. The other
vulnerabilities are denials of service that require local system
access; one applies only when mounting minix filesystems, the other
applies to certain process-exit conditions.

A system reboot is required to resolve these vulnerabilities.
