That was quite an impressive gathering of vulns and fixs! From the
paragraph I just cited above, I conclude that one should *not
necessarily* take such a long list as evidence of an upsurge in
attacks against the Linux kernel.

Am I on the right track with that?

Or, perhaps, is there such an upsurge, only the rate of Debian
Security fixes is not a good indicator of that activity?

Or maybe there is some other completely different story, and I am just
way off! <g>

All best,

No no no, my fish's name is Eric, Eric the fish. He's an halibut. I am
not a looney! Why should I be tarred with the epithet looney merely
because I have a pet halibut?
