You want more—more protection for business-critical applications running on Linux, applications that depend on glibc and OpenSSL.

As with the kernel, vulnerabilities in glibc or OpenSSL can’t wait to be patched.

That’s why, last November, we announced KernelCare+, an enhanced variant of KernelCare, one that patches vulnerabilities in essential user space libraries in addition to those in the Linux kernel. And as with KernelCare’s Linux kernel live patching, KernelCare+ updates applications without affecting their operational state—no restarts, no reboots.

In this part, Part 3, I develop that core Mango query to look at how the number of Linux kernel vulnerabilities varies by kernel version.
