That's why, unless you have a lot of time and experience, it's much
more secure to run a major distribution that has been reviewed by many
people rather than trying to make all of these decisions yourself.

If you should ever find a security problem with Debian, please be sure
to let us know via a channel appropriate to the level of the problem.
