If you're still using the Linux 2.6.16 kernel branch, the Linux 2.6.16.53 release is now available on kernel mirrors. The Linux 2.6.16.53 kernel has a security fix for a remotely triggerable NULL dereference. Among the other fixes include an IEEE-1394 forgotten dereference, array indexing fix in ntfs_init_locked_inode(), and fixing a netpoll deadlock in 8139too. The Linux 2.6.16.53 release announcement can be read on the LKML. Earlier this week the Linux 2.6.23-rc1 kernel was also released.
