For those who didn't know, the svlug machine got some visitors a while ago,
more specifically someone who got in with the root password, apparently
Michael got the root password compromized a while ago when he sshed in from
a compromized machine with a trojanned ssh client.
There was also the detail that svlug.org was running on a machine that
didn't fit nicely in a rack (the new one is a 2U with 2 drives in software
Raid 1), so even though I'm pretty sure I removed the crackers' access, I

I'm missing passwords for:
Ian and Brian. Ian, I'll try to call you at 408-526-6380,408-729-3733 as
recorded in your gecos field, and Brian, I know where to find you :-)
I'm hoping to be able to switch the machines over in a few days.
I've synced the web stuff as of last friday and I'll do a mailman resync
right before the switchover.
