    Today for the first time with my new Mac (Feb 2010) I had a Kernel Panic. The last time I had a problem with Kernel Panics, the problem ended up being a corrupted graphics card, that no technician was able to resolve. In fact my then iBook had been misdiagnosed by a number of people as being a software issue, which could be resolved by a clean install of the OS. The problem would go away for a while, and then come back with vengeance. I sure hope that the Kernel panic I just experienced was nothing major, but if it is, I am happy that I purchased the Apple extended warranty. I cannot remember the log that I need to check to find out the problem. When I had problems with my iBook in January of 2010 I was running Tiger and perhaps the log file location is different.

    First thing: did you experience another panic on reboot? If not then its unlikely to be horrible.

    Second: if we look at your back-tace we see that it was related to your firewall and was a software issue.

    What I would do:
    Run disk utility
    Run hardware check (for peace of mind)

    If this never happens again no worries if it does then it should be looked into in more depth.
