Ubuntu hardy and intrepid are still shipping known-remote-vulnerable
versions of Tor. The version they have in Intrepid is even
known-remote-root-vulnerable. And they still haven't gotten around to

If you're going to include Tor in your distribution, you really have
to maintain it. Since Ubuntu doesn't maintain packages in its Universe, it seemed like the smartest move to make sure we don't keep having this
problem with every new Ubuntu version.
