Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2013-02-22 19:45:33 UTC
From $URL :

Due to the way the Linux kernel handles the creation of IPv6 temporary
addresses a malicious LAN user can remotely disable them altogether
which may lead to privacy violations and information disclosure.

There are no longer any 2.x or <3.8 kernels available in the repository with the exception of sys-kernel/xbox-sources which is unsupported by security.
