Debian 9.1 GNU/Linux Released With 26 Security Fixes

Debian 9.1 GNU/Linux has been released as the first point release of Debian 9 Stretch stable. This version brings numerous updates and security fixes. If you’re already running a continuously updated Debian machine, you don’t need to perform the upgrade or reinstall.

The Debian Project has announced the first update of Debian 9 Stretch, i.e., Debian 9.1. The first point release to this latest stable Debian branch comes with many security issue fixes and other adjustments.
Many of you might be already knowing that Debian 9.1 doesn’t constitute a new Debian version or bring new features. Instead, it only updates the existing packages. So, one doesn’t need to perform an upgrade or reinstall if he/she has already installed the all recent updates in the past few months.

Talking by the numbers, this release has brought 54 important corrections to different packages, including the likes of apt, openssh, perl, systemd, grub-installer, etc.

Apart from that, 26 security updates have also been added. For detailed information about each of the updates, you can read the release notes here.

For updating all packages, including OS and other installed packages run the following command:

apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
