That is probably not thought through. It does not matter when the latest version was patched. Salix has not the current version, but a much older. Therefore, one should be careful.

Sorry but the two articles are the same. Slashdot has flamebait commenting, where the other one doesn't, nothing new.
And yes I was not adressing the issue, but now the term "Zero-Day" has become pop. Please do not cry wolf to often..it will get worse in the future.
