Kernel whoops in BackTrack 4

The latest Linux Kernel ‘sock_sendpage()’ NULL Pointer Dereference Vulnerability did not spare BackTrack 4 either.  We’ve taken this opportunity to upgrade the BackTrack 4 kernel and include the required security patch.

The repositories will be updated soon, to include additional drivers compiled against this kernel.

Once we are done with testing, a complete upgrade howto will be posted, hang in there!
