"Debian has added more security-oriented features to the newest version of its OS. Besides the regular Debian security support for the full archive, lenny introduces pro-active security features to pre-emptively reduce the chance of vulnerabilities. For example, the Debian Installer now applies any security updates before the first boot, several security-critical packages have been built with GCC hardening features, and the standard system contains fewer setuid root binaries and fewer open ports.
