Default Debian server hacked

Yes, the title is scary

http://www.debian.org/News/2006/20060713

Anyways, since i'm using kernel 2.6.14-2-686-smp and there it says that this is one of the versions that has this bug in it, i was kinda thinking of upgrading kernel untill i rememberd that this was the only kernel that recognized my SATA disks. Probably upgrading it and rebooting will result in non-bootable error or am i wrong?
If i get new kernel, won't it put it into grub loader and ask me which kernel to load? So even if the newest version of kernel doesn't work, i can simply boot from current kernel.

Not sure here, that's why i'm asking about this but i do remember that when ubuntu kernel was upgraded on my desktop that i had 2 entries at grub boot to choose from. Will this be the same deal?

Basically, just a precaution questions before i go messing on the live server

On the other hand, debians server was hacked cause attacker got 1 of the users account info.. so..

I don't think you need to upgrade unless you give your users shell access (which I'd never do...).

Yeah, no users have shell access plus they got hacked cause the hacker got an account info.. I've decided to leave it as it is..
