Ubuntu 14.04.6 LTS (Trusty Tahr) Released with Patched APT Package Manager

After last week’s Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS (Xenial Xerus) point release, Canonical now published the Ubuntu 14.04.6 LTS (Trusty Tahr) point release to offer users a more secure installation media that contains a patched APT package manager against a security vulnerability affecting all Debian and Ubuntu-based operating systems, which could allow a remote attacker to install malicious packages. The Ubuntu 14.04.6 LTS (Trusty Tahr) point release is now available for download, but it intended for new installations only so you won’t have to patch the APT package manager or download hundreds of updates after the installation. Live and installable ISO images are available for both 32-bit and 64-bit systems for Ubuntu Desktop 14.04.6 LTS, Ubuntu Server 14.04.6 LTS, and Ubuntu Kylin 14.04.6 LTS.
