Lftp is not at the heart of my system or anyone else's. The kernel _is_.
And this is not number 1, this is number 2 root kernel vul.- remember the
recent less than 2.4.23 issue? I look at many advisories, not just Linux
but also FreeBSD, Windows, etc. My point is that it shouldn't take 2 days
to compile and post a kernel to a website. I use Slackware exclusivly,
and I still stand behind it, but that doesn't mean that it's 100% perfect
or that I am happy with action (or lack of) that is made.
