Re: "Upgrading only takes a few minutes" Re: Upcoming OpenSSH vulnerability
It depends of the box you are willing to upgrade, sometimes you just better
loose an hour
upgrading a dozen of sshd than loosing twenty hours recovering backups
either been compromised, either are unsure about the integrity of that very
system with all the confidential customers databases.
My point of view would be that, since i'm paid to admin a dozens of box, i'd
better do it
and have a peaceful mind than upgrading one and worrying about what might
someone got to know i wasn't up to date.
Also, having shell scripts to automate the uploading and applying of a patch
isn't that hard
