LOTS OF LINUX UPDATES TODAY

Checking in on my server I saw that Linux wanted to be rebooted. There was also a lot of updates for Apache and other systems. Most of the updates are bug fixes but there are also lots of security holes fixed. It is also not known of any of the CVE vulnerabilities with Java are fixed as the site does not use it.

Linux tends to wait for the administrator to manually reboot rather than do it automatically. I updated the catalogs and then installed all of the updates and finally rebooted the machine to bring the new bootloader into action ect.

For some reason 3 version of the initramfs were created instead of only a single on as usual. This suggests that a new version of Linux is close to being distributed while at the same time the existing kernel seems to be stable. Apache was updated which is rare but this may be due to other security updates.
