If Unix code some how got into Linux and the code they disclosed so far
dates back to the early ages of Unix how the fuck can they say they
distributed it with out any knowledge?

Vulnerable devices include any home router or modem that uses Linux
Mipsel, has an administration interface, sshd, or telnet in a DMZ, and
employs a weak password. Once the malware takes hold, it locks
legitimate users out of the device by blocking telnet, sshd, and web
access. It then makes the devices part of a botnet. The researchers said
they first learned of the worm while investigating DDoS attacks that hit
DroneBL's infrastructure two weeks ago.

To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy!
So many people demonstrate in this newsgroup that
they know only a Linux of Hatred and Greed, of paranoia,
and of a selfish sense of entitlement. They seem always to be
behaving like monkeys in reaction to human dissenters,
throwing feces at one another and beating their
chests pretending to know something.
My Linux is not that Linux. My Linux is the Linux of Love,
of sharing, friendship, community. It is a uniquely
human Linux and not one for monkeys. When I speak
with fellow Linux users in real life (i.e. not in the
monkeyhouse of COLA) they remind me of myself: practical,
freedom-loving, anti-corporate. Here in COLA however
they remind me of monkeys or spoiled brats or worse,
My Linux is not your Linux. It is the human Linux
that acknowledges that Linux involves human work
to create, that although it is free you are not
entitled to it, that although it is created in large part
by volunteers, they deserve to be paid for their
gifts with at least gratitude. And that monkeys and
self-entitled brats and sysadmins never thank anyone.

...Help with old freeswan and old linux on old hardware.
I just stepped into a network support position to find a Pentium 100
running some long lost version of Red Hat Linux with FreeS/WAN 1.91
running as the VPN endpoint for our connection to our colocation
servers. To say the least I dont want to touch this beast with too
heavy a hand for fear of it breaking before I can document everything
that its doing. However, out of the blue a problem has apeared. While
the rest of the network can see the colo site using this box as a
gateway the box itself cannot conect out. This is a problem as it is
also our DNS cache for the DNS server at the colo site. Any ideas as
to what I should look for while trying to fix this?
