According to rloxley:

      A very smart attacker will:

A smarter one will walk up to the console you assume they have
physical access to and hit the DDB hot-key sequence (this is
control-alt-escape for i386, other architectures are different).  Note
that DDB is an _option_ that is in the GENERIC kernel by default it
can be disabled by reconfiguring the kernel.  You can also prevent the
kernel from dropping to DDB on a panic by putting

options DDB_ONPANIC=0

in the kernel config and rebuilding.  Well, at least you can for
NetBSD - not sure about OpenBSD.
