I am sure that there are other ways to determine what version of he Linux kernel that is running.

'uname -a' comes to mind.

This 'threat detection' is just one of those things that, if you are lucky, can be used to detect some old hack a script kiddie may try on your computer as they just randomly try different things. But any threat beyond the most trivial it would quickly become completely worthless.

The question is what percentage of the threats a Real World box is exposed to is "trivial". This is not a tool to make the OS invulnerable, but to improve the bottom-line.
