Comment FUD (Score 1) 108

I don't believe the absurdity of this article, and this research paper! It's claims read as if contrived and there are no references to support them. Moreover GeoEdge then offers their own product as a solution to these claims.

Truth is you are not safe from malicious advertising regardless the vector, flash, Javascript or plain text email.

Comment Re: Why not allow the update into the repos? (Score 1) 126

Excellent point! I never knew they provided these repos...

Either way, the version jump is too large to demand an automatic update, so the next natural step would be a security update, which is supposed to be supported by 12.04[1] and 14.04.

These usually enter the stream as patches, so it is likely that nobody has submitted a patch to fix these holes.
