This kernel vulnerability could allow a local attacker to cause a system crash, leading to a DoS (Denial of Service)

While it is bad it is not to serious if it really is limited to a local attacker
I would not recommend upgrading the kernel as Elyssa is Beta and it will literally break everything
The upgraded kernel should of course preferably be in the final version, but it is impossible at this late stage. We would have to start from scratch...
It is a serious vulnerability, but it can only be performed by a local attacker, not over the internet, so the danger may not be all that high.
I will do an update on a nvidia system and see how difficult it is to get back after an update
