Could you explain to me what exactly I'm disclosing?
The news is already on slashdot and so on, and I think
it'd be better to know, as hackers will.

I made 10 000 connection attempts with a random pass
to one of my Squeeze server, and couldn't get in, so unless
I'm really unlucky (there's one chance out of 256), then
Debian is not vulnerable. I just wanted to be sure of it.
