Re: Are kernel updates security updates?

The Changelogs in Synaptic Package Manager are same as Update Manager. I find it confusing the changelog for the kernel is listed under a different update, the kernel headers for development. However thank you for explaining.

Are kernel updates security updates?

In Update Manager the Changelog for security updates list the security problems it will fix. However the Changelog for The Linux kernel update contains no information. How can I view actual changelog for Linux kernel update to discover if it contains security fixes? Thank you.

I am. However Linux Mint drive is not mounted in Windows and I don't think Windows will access unmounted drive or mount the drive on its own so perhaps it is safe.

Re: Hide HDD in Computer

Thank you for the help. I suppose it can not be done.

I have a MS Windows hard drive on my computer. Are there more steps to prevent Linux Mint processes from reading or writing to the Windows hard drive?
