Re: SSH key spoofing

Wouldn't constantly changing ssh keys make it more secure?

Hrmm.. My scanner seems to be getting hung on some bug (possibly one
that I'm tickling in Tor or possibly my own), so I haven't seen this
during automatic scanning yet, but I can confirm manually that
tormentor IS in fact regularly changing ssh keys. It should be
delisted as an exit ASAP.

toxischnet is currently hibernating, so its hard to say on that one.
