Debian Locks Out Developers 331

daria42 wrote in with an update to an earlier story about a Debian server that was compromised. He explains: "The Debian GNU/Linux project has discovered a compromised developer account was used to gain access to a server compromised this week. A local kernel vulnerability was then used to gain root access. Due to this, a number of developers with weak passwords have been locked out of their system accounts." To be fair, they'll most likely be let in once everything's back to normal. Of course, they'll probably need to set safer passwords too.
