All,

Red Hat announced a new Red Hat CVE:

https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2016-0715.html

A 'yum update' may give you a new non-web100 kernel and therefore break
access to NDT/NPAD. Consult our FAQ for more info:
http://www.perfsonar.net/about/faq/#Q25

Our read of the CVE does not find any issue of concern specific to the
toolkit. If you are in doubt about your kernel, feel free to review the CVE,
upgrade to the latest version, and forgo NDT/NPAD support for the time being.
We are in the process of building and testing a new kernel, and will alert
you when we have our web100 patched version available. We'll try to have it
ready as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience,
The perfSONAR Team
