I updated my Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

My /var/log/apt/history.log says that linux-signed-image-3.13.0-134-generic:amd64 has been installed.

The changelog page says

  • linux: 3.13.0-134.183 -proposed tracker (LP: #1722335)

This does not look like patch for the Key Reinstallation Attacks.

Should I assume that a patch has not been released yet? Was it released prior to the divulgation of the attacks? Do I wait?
