get some perspective.  It is doubtful someone can use reading the pmu
to hack into your machine.  Of course, you should portscan your
machine - as you've done.  Setup a firewall while you're at it, also
available *for free with DebianPPC*.  If you're so concerned, don't 
run pmud and/or *write true apm support yourself*.

You do have control, don't use pmud.  If you still have doubts
run OpenBSD and go flame some perfectly nice people on that list
instead of this one.
