The subject says it all. I wonder why it took so long for Debian and Ubuntu to confirm that some of their versions were affected and to offer a newer version.

I didn't really understand it, but Debian said that whatever feature/configuration was affected by the vulnerability was not implemented in Debian Stable, so they only had to patch Oldstable.

I don't know. I'm working in a RHEL/Oracle Linux/CentOS shop and I tend to use what I do for work for everything. I haven't kept up with Debian TBH.
