Well, the latest openssh (3.4) is said to be safe, but you never now what's next.
Yesterday we had a Theo Bug, tomorrow we might have a Tatu Bug. Open had only one
remote hole in six years, afaik Tatu's had more.
I can apt-get a fixed openssh a few hours after the sechole is announced, but I
can't do that with "The Real Thing".
