I don't have time right now, but my curiosity is up. Has anyone
looked at what this OpenSSL Uzi shebang is all about?
It is a wrapper for the "openssl-too-open" proof-of-concept that was
released I believe in Jan 02. From just a quick glace it adds to the
original by allowing scanning of class A's instead of just class C's.
Performs web server and OS fingerprinting, and spits out a nice little
victim list. The OpenSSL exploit was a remote non-root, but with the
release of the ptrace exploit code it could get ugly for people that are
*really* irresponsible about patching.
