Or even, *especially* keep Linux kernels and indeed systems updated, 
since they are likely to be involved with critical infrastructure when 
in server instances.

Also, although Linux with all updates is moderately secure compared with 
Certain Other Systems that don't even embed the idea of proper user 
isolation, Unix after all was the playground for the first ever internet 
worm ;)  *

Who knows how many holes are still there? The systemd authors clearly 
don't... :))


* Morris worm, qv.
