this is the list of packages it will never update, instead of just
integrating changes properly with the packagaes in the ubuntu archive
they instead suppress doing (security) updates at all for them.
i would say forcefully keeping a vulnerable kernel browser or xorg in
place instead of allowing the provided security updates to be installer
makes it a vulnerable system, yes
i personally wouldn't do online banking with it ;)
