I have at least a few and possibly many machines that will require a

and is there a known work around to prevent this from being exploited?

Someone already posted the workaround.

We will be releasing updated kernels begin of next week.

as far as I see all updates are out except for SLES/D 11 SP1 (only GA so far).
Can you tell if it is scheduled already?

SLE 11 SP1 kernel is in QA ... if all goes well it will go out this week.

Btw, the rds module is only in kernel-FLAVOUR-extra, deinstall that or it can
be safely deleted
usually.

Ciao, Marcus
