I'm a security minded person, normally I want to make sure most of the software packages that I use in my operating system stays secure.
Now, suppose there is a package called "sunshine" installed in my system(through apt of course), and have a vulnerable version
8.70, the ubuntu security advisory tells me
9.10 is the last version vulnerable, but after I do
apt-get install --only-upgrade, I still have "sunshine" at a vulnerable version number ( below
This is pretty insecure, right? I found this post which says they don't update newer version of software on system's repository after a version of Ubuntu was officially released. However, that post was old, is this still true?
