The Internet Storm Center and this site report that a debian development server was compromised.

Might want to be careful of running updates until more information is available.

Thanks for the heads up - I think f2b uses Debian. I don't have any Debian repos in Ubuntu's sources.list, so I'm alright :)

Forget running Debian Unstable. Debian Compromised is where it's at. Source

Sometimes the light's all shining on me, other times I can barely see. Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it's been.

Do you feel really special about that.?

Actually it was pretty lame, they couldn't find an exploit in the actual 0s that is used on the box.
Instead it was the software that was installed onto the Debian box that they exploited..

very lame indeed, considering they used a openly available skiddy tool that's been floating around for over a year now..

So yes lame, very lame indeed.. :roll:
