VMware Releases Open Source Virtualization Client
I think what VMware is open-sourcing relatively trivial products in their offerings that can only be used with their non-open-sourced products. They lose very little and gain the open-source distribution channels. i.e. vmware-view-open-client will end up probably end up in the Fedora/Ubuntu apt/yum repos. I think that was also the motivation behind open-vm-tools. Their ultimate goal being to use the apt and yum to maintain their hooks into the os and hopefully have the community maintain it. Not to look a gift horse in the mouth or anything.
Debian Bug Leaves Private SSL/SSH Keys Guessable
On ubuntu.... according to the vulnerability description..
Once the update is applied, weak user keys will be automatically rejected where possible (though they cannot be detected in all cases). If you are using such keys for user authentication, they will immediately stop working and will need to be replaced (see step 3). OpenSSH host keys can be automatically regenerated when the OpenSSH security update is applied. The update will prompt for confirmation before taking this step.
