That was quite an impressive gathering of vulns and fixs! From the
paragraph I just cited above, I conclude that one should *not
necessarily* take such a long list as evidence of an upsurge in
attacks against the Linux kernel.
Am I on the right track with that?
Or, perhaps, is there such an upsurge, only the rate of Debian
Security fixes is not a good indicator of that activity?
Or maybe there is some other completely different story, and I am just
way off! <g>
