even though the web application is extremely secure and there isn't an obvious way anyone could execute arbitrary commands. Famous last words :D

comment Ubuntu is misbehaving severely
Did you do anything or did anything happen prior to the issues starting? A bad/random shutdown, hardware fault, etc. Please paste the relevant system logs /var/log/messages /var/log/kern.log /var/log/boot.log into a pastebin and edit your answers with links to them.

comment How to remove old kernels properly?
@saiarcot895 my point is that this is not the latest kernel. If you need new kernel features there are plenty of backports for actual newer kernels for precise and if you go through the trouble of building it yourself you might as well go as bleeding edge as you need. I cannot think of a reason to install or upgrade 11 different revisions of the same underlying kernel version, it risks breaking the system and provides a marginal benefit if any at all.

comment How to remove old kernels properly?
Just FYI, these are very minor ubuntu/debian specific kernel tweaks (3.2.0 is the kernel -29-generic is the debian revision). Typically there is no real reason to upgrade for these changes unless there is a specific bug that is affecting you that is fixed by the next debian revision.
