1. What's Included in This Update
This update includes a new Parallels Server Bare Metal 5.0 kernel (2.6.32-042stab092.3) based on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 kernel (2.6.32-431.20.3.el6). The new kernel introduces a security fix.
2. Bug Fixes
- On a Hardware Node with the kernel 2.6.32-042stab092.1 or 2.6.32-042stab092.2, Containers running Ubuntu could fail to restart and would remain in the 'mounted' state. (#PSBM-28104)
  The same issue could also be triggered by an unprivileged user in any Container, resulting in a memory leak and a potential DoS attack.
All users are highly advised to install this update.
3. Obtaining the Update
You can download and install the update using the vzup2date utility included in the Parallels Server Bare Metal 5.0 distribution set.
