Hallo harry,

- use debian testing (stable is too old, unstable is ... well... you 
know ;))

yes, unstable works well :)
with testing your system isn't secure.

- maybe allow ssh (no root logins)?

you can use ssh. a remote root shell have to be forbidden.

==> is this ok, too paranoia or is there somenting i'm missing, and 
cound it be even more safe?

how about a compiler? normally, all soft on it is compiled by hand, but 
it is also "necessary" for a local exploit.

any ideas? remarks?

i don't understand the question.
regards nico
