Is it possible for the unwitting to install a kernel-image downloaded 
from official debian sources that hasn't been patched for the recent 
exploit, or can all the currently downloadable images (and kernel 
source packages too, for that matter) be taken to be safe from it? I've 
switched to woody, and have today installed image-2-4-18-k6  #1, dated 
Apr 14 2002. Clearly the date suggests no patch has been applied, so is 
this kernel vulnerable to the exploit, please, or does it not arise in 
this branch?
