ADVISORY - 30th August 2016 - Update your Peppermint system.
« on: August 30, 2016, 06:38:20 am »
Team Peppermint advise that all users update their systems to kernel 4.4.0-36 now.

You can update by clicking the "shield" icon in the system tray, then click the "Refresh" button, then once refreshed, click the "Install Updates" button .. once finished, REBOOT.

Another method is via the command line by running these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
then REBOOT.

Which ever method you choose, once rebooted run:
Code: [Select]
uname -a
to check you're now running the 4.4.0-36 kernel

This kernel fixes the 8 known vulnerabilities listed here:

WARNING: You are logged into reality as 'root' .. logging in as 'insane' is the only safe option.
