Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS Makes It Easier to Patch the Linux Kernel without Rebooting... Because it's not Microsoft Windows


The new Livepatch desktop integration included in Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS consists of an indicator in the system tray area of the top panel, which displays the current status of Livepatch and notifications to inform users when new patch are available and if they've been applied.

Additionally, the Livepatch configuration UI, which is integrated as a tab in the Software & Updated utility, now gives users even more details on the corresponding CVEs that have been addressed in the latest patch. From there, you can also hide the indicator or disable Livepatch altogether.
