Updates for both security and non-functional packages, are essential for a smooth-running system. Mandriva recommends that all users upgrade to the packages issued by any advisory to prevent problems with your system and unauthorized intrusion or denial of service attacks.

Please note: While Mandriva supports a large number of Mandriva Linux distributions, not all are supported. If you are currently using an unsupported distribution, please upgrade to a more recent version to ensure you continue to obtain timely updates.

Security update advisories are sent to the security announce mailing lists.

Please review the product lifetime policy so you are aware of when updates support for your particular distribution will cease.
