      Following today’s news on ZDNet that Ubuntu now needs a patch to patch the patch (say that when you’ve had a drink) I had a quick check and found that Linux Mint’s Update Manager repositories do indeed have a kernel patch… but only to bring it up to the vulnerable 4.15.0-44.47 version AFAICS. (I have no idea what’s going on…)

      I see no signs yet to a patch to 4.15.0-45.48… (Does your Update Manager show differently?)

      Yes, Mint 19.1 has also been updated to the 4.15.0-45 kernel.  The 4.15.0-44 kernel release had a few issues.  And, for anyone using Mint’s 4.18 kernel option as I am, it’s current release is 4.18.0-14.

      I see patch on my update manager.  I also see linux-libc-dev patch as a kernel update. Should I install this as well? Or would it be installed as well if I update to

      Linux Mint 19.1 proposed an upgrade to, which I duly installed. But I uninstalled it when I noticed that Mint did not pick up a USB stick anymore, a problem reported by others too on the Linux Mint forum.
