I recently provisioned a droplet using digitalocean’s LEMP 43 image on the marketplace.
I noticed that Nginx version is 1.18.0. According to Nginx official site, this version is no longer supported. Only supported versions currently are 1.24 and 1.25. I’m not sure if DigitalOcean maintains and patches the 1.18.0 version somehow on their own (maybe using some PPA?).
So basically I’m trying to understand, am I secure using this v1.18.0 that came with the LEMP image, or should I be looking to manually upgrade?
