hi there Night Wing, im hoping you are taking into account that kernel updates in the same series kernel such as the 4.15.0-xx LTS series, are bug fixes and security updates that SHOULD be updated mostly for security reason...they are not "re-inventing the wheel", they are maintaining the integrity ...

Re: Linux Mint ISO distro hacked in 2016 and a back door installed

that breach was caught almost immediately, Linux MInt versions since that date have not been nor ever effected, this is also why, when downloading an ISO, they instruct you to test the "checksum" values to insure that it matches. this was announced on this site immediately after it occurred along wi...
