comment What dangers have the Apt bugs security holes (USN-2348-1) caused?
@Jan can you tell what this means "If you never used repositories without having a valid signing key for the repo, you're probably not affected."? Is being a simple 12.04 user that did a clean/vanila install and then used apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade -y now a case of a valid signing key? Also did the bug affect such a user?

@muru thank you. So does it mean that not everybody has such valid signing key?

@Jan it is correct what you say. The question original is regarding the dangers that have been there in between. It is quite clear by itself that updating the flawed parts helps to end the problem.

thank you. Is a valid signing key something special or has that been with every Ubuntu user. Is that "having a valid signing key something" something that would have been true for developers only or for almost each ubuntu user?

comment What is the purpose of the ssl-cert-snakeoil.key
:) I am aware of the work origin and general meaning of snakeoil. In the answer above you say it's created for the snakeoil user and should not be deleted: which is why I thought there was one.
