After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make all the necessary changes.

ATTENTION: Due to an unavoidable ABI change the kernel updates have been given a new version number, which requires you to recompile and reinstall all third party kernel modules you might have installed. If you use linux-restricted-modules, you have to update that package as well to get modules which work with the new kernel version. Unless you manually uninstalled the standard kernel metapackages (e.g. linux-generic, linux-server, linux-powerpc), a standard system upgrade will automatically perform this as well.

Details follow:

Gleb Napatov discovered that KVM did not correctly check certain privileged operations. A local attacker with access to a guest kernel could exploit this to crash the host system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-0435)

Steve Chen discovered that setsockopt did not correctly check MSS values. A local attacker could make a specially crafted socket call to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4165)

Dave Jones discovered that the mprotect system call did not correctly handle merged VMAs. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4169)

Vegard Nossum discovered that memory garbage collection was not handled correctly for active sockets. A local attacker could exploit this to allocate all available kernel memory, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4249)

Title: VMware ESX third party updates for Service Console packages glibc and dhcp
Description: The wait_for_unix_gc function in net/unix/garbage.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.37-rc3-next-20101125 does not properly select times for garbage collection of inflight sockets, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system hang) via crafted use of the socketpair and sendmsg system calls for SOCK_SEQPACKET sockets.
