Ubuntu announced its 8.04 (Hardy Heron) release almost 5 years ago,
on April 24, 2008. As with the earlier LTS releases, Ubuntu committed
to ongoing security and critical fixes for a period of 5 years. The
support period is now nearing its end and Ubuntu 8.04 will reach end
of life on Thursday, May 9th. At that time, Ubuntu Security Notices
will no longer include information or updated packages for Ubuntu 8.04.

The supported upgrade path from Ubuntu 8.04 is via Ubuntu 10.04.
Users are encouraged to evaluate and upgrade to our latest 12.04 LTS
release via 10.04. Instructions and caveats for the upgrades may be
found at https://help.ubuntu....y/LucidUpgrades and
https://help.ubuntu....reciseUpgrades. Ubuntu 10.04 and
12.04 continue to be actively supported with security updates and
select high-impact bug fixes. All announcements of official security
updates for Ubuntu releases are sent to the ubuntu-security-announce
