Re: Linux bug leaves thousands of users vulnerable
That's good, but a worrying number of people are using Ubuntu versions that are no longer supported. One guy today is asking for help installing Flash Plugin on Ubuntu 9.04. I'm pretty sure there are people still on 10.04, although I think the patch will probably come to those users anyway as the package could be a dependency of server packages. Heck, my netbook is on 13.04 (and is staying off the internet until I can get a 14.04 daily on there).
