Wow... Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04 lifecycle extended to ten years. Good news for the ones who don't want to upgrade their servers anytime soon, I guess? https://ubuntu.com/blog/ubuntu-14-04-and-16-04-lifecycle-extended-to-ten-years #linux #ubuntu #lts #extension #server
@boilingsteam it is bad news. old obsolete vulnerable code on more servers. Also more attact possibilities
@ranjithsiji They still get security updates.
@nanook @ranjithsiji root exploits mostly really matter if you have a system that's exposed to the internet. That's far from being the case for every server out there.
@nanook @ranjithsiji You can't seriously be using nation-states attacks as a argument. They have access to zero-days anyway on the latest software no matter how often you update.
Everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct! Thank you.
