Tell me, who do you secure a system against buffer overflows, stack overflow, stack smashing, ipc compromises, memory corruptions, root exploits, race conditions, to mention a few?
Since I really don't know how, you might as well begin to school me of how to secure a system "(instead of realying on "secure" packages, or automatically applied kernel patches)."
Apply appropriate when they are needed? I don't see why they should be applied automatically. A good sysadmin can apply them himself when they are needed for the specific situation.
