Update Kernel



Here is how to update the Kernel on Raspbian Jessie. The reason I am doing this is because of something called 'Dirty COW' which is an exploit that could allow someone to take control of your RPi (if it's on the internet).

  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get install raspberrypi-kernel



Then reboot the Pi for the changes to take effect.
