Subject: SSH Exploit Request

This is not a flame!!

I'm just wondering if announcing to a list full of people both good, and bad 
who are able to exploit an old bug that "I have an un-patched system" is good 
security practice?

I got rooted after simply replying to an ass-hole asking "if any one thought 
they where being spied on by the US Gov" off the list it was an old MDK8.1 
box I was trying to keep around just a minuet or two longer and didn't have 
time to patch properly. (My Bad) 

My 2 cents

Adam
