As i wrote long ago to list, just upgrading to plain .8 not solves all 
security related issues of 2.6.18.x kernels, for example Pardus Xen packages 
currently top on .8 and we still have lots of CVEish patches in our package 

Please do not misunderstand but i really recommend stick with your distro 
packages instead of xensource provided ones if you care about security.
