Crucially, these updates to both Linux and Windows will incur a

Howto patch Spectre Vulnerability CVE-2017-5753/CVE-2017-5715 on Linux

Thanks.

Shouldn't a security update be pushed through the Ubuntu update repository?


Notice that for Ubuntu you use apt/apt-get which to my knowledge does get it's updates from the Ubuntu repositories or/and any others you have installed.

That's why I asked.

I get kernels updates without using apt-get.

I got a boatload of updates this morning.

I only got initramfs-tools and ruby (two each).
