This attitude towards a security hole that compromises root
privileges in all Debian systems as installed by default
constitutes an important change compared to Debian's past
policy regarding security problems.

Unfortunately, the fact that Debian cannot be trusted anymore to fix
serious security compromises when these are rerported makes it a non-option
for any usage where elementary security is required.
