Well since you don't believe me on this (or other :) issues, read
Alan's words:


Read the remainder of the thread.  No one contradicts his assertion that 
2.6 is shipping with known security holes.  This was the time for another 
developer to stand up and disagree but not one of them did.

In fact the remainder of the thread pertains to a non-security related 
problem with smbfs in 2.6.10.

I think it is pretty clear cut but each person can make up their own
