Security Updates

Parsix Developers closely follow Debian Security Advisories and port them to our own security repository. Right now we are offering security support for both of our stable and testing branches. Parsix Continent repository is also fully supported by security updates.

Keeping Your System Secure

To keep your systems secure, make sure you have the following entries in your /etc/apt/sources.list file. Make sure to replace codename with a release codename such as raul or vinnie.

deb http://security.parsix.org codename main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.parsix.org codename main contrib non-free

Constantly follow the update notifier or manually run the following command to update your systems:

# apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
