    The vulnerabilities in the Linux kernels are found and patched frequently. I would say it will be better to have updates applied automatically, make sure the ‘unattended-upgrades’ package is installed, then run ‘sudo dpkg-reconfigure unattended-upgrades’. Please note that updates may restart services on your machine, so this may not be appropriate for all environments.

    A vulnerability announced by Canonical on July 2nd. -> http://www.ubuntu.com/usn/usn-1494-1/

      People there’s no need to panic. When your OS says that there are security updates, simply install them. It’s not really essential to have automatic updates enabled. unattended-upgrades is primarily meant for production servers(like the webserver hosting InCTF’s portal) or the likes. Just thought I should add this as well. Thanks Giri for sharing this piece of info!

    Hi, I came across an Virtual Box error Failed to load VMMR0.r0 (VERR_SUPLIB_WORLD_WRITABLE). It took a lot of time to find out the solution for it.
    The solution was :
    sudo chmod o-w /usr

    If any come across the same error please do remember the solution 🙂
