I've disabled logins with DSA keys on  Turns out that
while your RSA key is only vulnerable if *created* on a weak Debian or
Ubuntu machine, your DSA key is vulnerable if *used* on Debian/Ubuntu┬╣,
due to DSA having a greater reliance on randomness.

Please mail sysadmin at if you were using a DSA key that you
now need to replace.
