Actually the security hole was in the RSAref libraries, and I've updated
and securifyied everything appropriately within hours of seeing the
bugtraq post.

I refuse to update to SSH2 because the new protocol is an attempt by
F-Secure to grab hold of the momentum behind the open-source SSH for
itself.  SSH2 provides no material advantages, and its server is non-free
(not just non-open-source, non-free in other wats).  The effort to support
is OpenSSH -  I installed their daemon but it had
interoperability problems with SecureCRT so I bailed on it, but I plan to
return to it once it's got more stability.
