Seen on the NYLUG list:

It seems that someone has gotten the drop on the openssh team:


Time to start disabling root logins and testing your openssh upgrade

Remember, just kill the parent sshd.  Then you don't log yourself out



The page linked to mentions "lsh".  First I've heard of that.
Anyone local care to comment on a) how serious is the openssh
problem, and b) the idea of switching to lsh?
