Once logged into WHM I continue to receive a security notice's.

Security Notice:
A security vulnerability was discovered in cPanel which may result in privilege escalation. This vulnerability can be resolved by updating your cPanel software here. The necessary patch will occur automatically on all servers during the daily execution of upcp. If cron jobs have been disabled on your server, then you should manually update your cPanel software.
Security Notice:
There are several known Linux kernel exploits which may allow local privilege escalation. These exploits have become commonplace in recent weeks and can be avoided by ensuring that your kernel is updated to the latest available version. While cPanel will help ensure your system services and software are up to date, kernel updates are outside the scope of cPanel. Kernels with known vulnerabilities include, but are not limited to, 2.6.9-22 and 2.6.9-34. Please check your running kernel for updates periodically. This will help ensure the overall integrity of your server and data.
Upon receiving these messages I updated cPanel/WHM, my system software, server software and also my backend scripts. Do these security notice's continue to display until others are released or have I done something completely wrong?

Thank you.

Go on, have a guess
They're generic messages that originate from cPanel and may or may not be relevant to your installation. They'll disappear when cPanel remove/replace them on their site.
