Description:
Previous versions of the kernel package contain multiple
vulnerabilities, the most serious of which can allow an unprivileged
user to cause a denial of service.

In addition, an issue which made the kernel unbootable as a guest in
Microsoft Virtual Server has been resolved.

A system reboot is required to resolve these issues.
