Thank you for the fixes.  Everyone seems to complain, but no one seems
to want to thank you.

Thank you, too, for being great netizens and working balls-out to fix
the huge DNS holes.

The bind updates were seriously needed and (I can only presume) required
a LOT of time. I realize that the catastrophicness of the DNS exploits
had to be addressed as quickly as possible, it is a shame that the PHP5
security holes couldn't have been fixed sooner.  It is likely to be
installed on a greater number of installations. There are two,
currentLTS releases that should be being supported in a more timely

If Red Hat did, in fact, update PHP 5 security holes faster than Ubuntu,
then clearly the LTS security team needs to seriously consider hiring
additional able coders.

Please roll out security fixes from PHP 5.2.6
