Hasn't 6.x been End Of Lifed? I mean considering that 8.0 is expected
to be released either later this month or early next, and 6.x will be
officially retired at that time, is it possible that this was
overlooked? Personally I don't think it's ever good to overlook
security, especially in the case of a root exploit.
