I'm not sure I understand the question. As a non-LTS (long-term
support) release, Ubuntu 10.10 had 18 months of support, which ended in
April 2012. Since then (and into the future) no new updates, security
or otherwise, have been or will be produced by Canonical.

I'm not aware of anyone else, not Canonical, taking over that
responsibility for older Ubuntu releases.

The 10.10 repository is still available. Whatever is in that repository
right now is all there ever will be.

For more information about Ubuntu releases and end-of-life dates, see:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases


Cheers!

10.10 is no longer supported.

Upgrade to a supported release or do it yourself: Find out for your
installed applications what security problems exist and patch the source
code of those applications accordingly.

It looks like the repositories for Maverick at
<http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/> are still available. Therefore I
suppose you can get the last security updates which are probably from
April 2012.

You can't. It's dead. It is obsolete, discontinued, will never be
coming back to life. It is now theoretically unsafe to use on the
Internet in general, as it is built out of outdated, obsolete
components with known security issues and bugs, and because it is
obsolete, there will not be any updates.

Ordinary Ubuntu releases, like 10.10, are only supported for 18mth.
10.10 is from October 2010, just under one year ago; support and
updates stopped for it 6mth ago and will not be restarting.

Change your plans. Upgrade. As soon as possible. 11.04 goes out of
support next month; your best bet is to go to 12.04. If you do not
like upgrading every 6mth, stay on the even-numbered x.04 releases,
which are long-term support versions: 8.04, 10.04, 12.04.

Your other alternative is to downgrade to 10.04 which will receive
updates for about another 6-7 months. As this itself tells you, this
is not an ideal plan, and in 6mth you will need to change again.

If you do not like Unity, consider switching to Linux Mint with Maté.
It is much like the GNOME 2 environment you have now.

If you want to stay in the Ubuntu family rather than the Mint one, you
could consider NotaLinux, but it is not an official remix.
Alternatively, Xubuntu offers a desktop that is very like GNOME 2 and
which is current, supported, very much alive and receiving updates &
active development.

Meaningless question. All Ubuntu and Debian releases get support for
/all/ components installed from their respective repositories. It
makes no difference if you are talking about OS or apps: it is all
one.
