Debian Lenny logo In a post on its security announce mailing list, the Debian Project development team has reminded users that version 5.0 of its Debian Linux distribution, also known as "Lenny", will reach its end of life (EOL) on 6 February 2012. From that date, no further updates, including security updates and critical fixes, will be released.

Debian Security Team member Moritz Muehlenhoff notes that users and distributors have had one year to upgrade their installations to Debian 6.0 "Squeeze", the project's current stable release from February of this year. Users are advised to upgrade to version 6.0 of Debian to continue receiving updates.
