Hi there gang,
I normally don't frequent the newsgroups, as you all
know, however I thought I'd put a plug here for a site
you guys may (or may not) be interested in.

A great place for Themes for X and other assorted extras.

We have Themes for:

We have other things like...
Tile of the Day
Guest Tiler of the week (was slack on this weeks :( (to open mid this week)
The Daily Root (daily background images for your desktop :)
Joe Linux User ( different "avg" Joe User each week) (irc stuff)
A Daily Poll

Yup.. we feel that your time is valuable, so we are dedicated
to NOT having ads tossed your way.  This site is for the
people and NOT for profit.

We also have links to most of your favorite sites off the main
page so you can easily use it for a start page ;)

At 100k+ hits a day, we're getting to almost where I
want the site to be.

Soon to come: (maybe) (x11amp/emusic skins)
Much more :)

Hope you find everything you need.
Sincerely yours,
Trae Mc Combs

1., cracked

Following the compromise of sourceforge, it seems that has
been ccracked via a vulnerability in OpenSSH version 2.2.0:

Slashdot reports a related defacement of

Judging from, there is only one
vulnerability in 2.2.0, and this is fixed in 2.3.0 and later.

Before Chad Myers jumps in, this exploit is nothing to do with a
`fundamental flaw' in the SSH protocol, but rather a bug in its
implementation, that was fixed months ago.

It's not very confidence-inspiring that such important open-source
sites don't keep security-critical software up to date.
