    I am trying to protect my server against Dirty Cow and I have run the following
    apt-get update
    apt-get dist-upgrade
    apt-get autoremove
    uname -rv
    3.16.0-77-generic #99~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jun 28 19:17:10 UTC 2016
    Which leaves me with a kernel version I believe to be earlier than the required: 3.16.36
    Am I safe against Dirty Cow?
