It is reported that,a safe list of Linux distributions (Linux-distros security list) is a closed list of security issues that have not yet been released.So that companies can discuss and specify repair strategies.

The list currently includes key developers from FreeBSD, NetBSD, and major Linux distributions.

For example, Canonical, Debian, Red Hat, SUSE, and cloud Linux vendors such as Amazon AWS and Oracle.

As a new Linux distributor, Linux kernel developer Sasha Levin representsMicrosoftSpeaking:

The Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) has accumulated decades of experience in addressing security issues.

However, even if we can quickly fix the disclosed security issues within 1-2 hours, we need to conduct a large number of verification tests before the announcement.

After becoming a member of the Linux distribution safe list, we are expected to get extra time for extensive testing.

In addition, Microsoft’s cloud usage on the cloud has surpassedWindows.

At the same time, MSRC began receiving Linux problem codes and security reports from users and vendors, such as the common Windows and Linux issues such as earlier predictions of performing hardware security vulnerabilities.

It is reported that members will vote on Microsoft's application for joining in the next few weeks.But it seems that it has received quite a bit of support.
