An exploit in the linux kernel was recently discovered which affects most linux distributions. This exploit potentially allows an unprivileged user to gain root-level control of the system, allowing them to commit malicious activity and / or compromise your data. If you are running Linux on any of your servers it is strongly recommended that you run full system kernel updates and reboot your server in order to patch the system.
