November 19, 2003 Possible Baddness will be down sometime tomorrow afternoon as it will be rebuilt at that time. If you have an account on the system please back anything up as a precaution. Your home directory will be safe, but backing up any databases, etc will be a Good Idea™. Also, all passwords will be re-set, you'll have to email alan ( - at - ) to get them reset. Please email me at that address with any questions. Mostly this is a precaution but there is the possibility that this system has been compromised by a LKM trojan and data coming to and from it is considered unsafe, so if you have an account here better change your passwords on any other systems and make sure you don't trust any ssh-keys you have stored.

Hopefully things will be back to normal tomorrow night.

Update: Based on this post and this bug I'm confident enough to take back what I said. Ignore me. Rewind. Undo, whatever :) Thanks to Christophe for pointing this out to me.
