As any sys-admin, even though it´s more a hobby for me, i have to struggle with updates from time to time.

On this box the slightly outdated debian squeeze is running, and after the lately security vulns i learned a nice lesson which might be useful for some of you.

I assume, Debian Squeeze does not backport all the fancy security fixes unless you add the LTS repos to your apt/sources.list

To get LongTermSupport, add these two lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list

After some upgrades i have rebooted the box yesterday.
So in case some people pondered about the short downtime, the answer is right here Smile

Happy Challenging!
