I am trying to do an apt-get update;apt-get upgrade to update some of the packages that require updating, everytime I try to apt-get update I am getting unable to connect to mirrors.kernel.org. I am guessing this is related to the recent kernel.org compromise but can anyone lend a hand as to how to update my sources.list with something that works?

Kernel.org was hacked recently. The server is currently down for maintenance. Wait some days or look for mirrors on the Net. I would prefer to wait.
