Woody boot-floppies use flawed kernels


  Is there any intention to release a new version of the Woody boot-floppies
based on the kernel-image-2.2.25 and kernel-image-2.4.20-1 kernels which 
include the ptrace security hole fix ( see DSA-270 for example.)  Obviously
this would require similar patched kernels for all architectures to be
available too.  Perhaps a critical or grave bug should be filed against
the boot-floppies & debian-cd to ensure this issue receives attention ?
