Uh, some more info would be nice... ;) Better to send too much than too little and lose a couple of days with back and forth messages!

Not a Good Thing (TM). :(

What exactly happened? I'm still not sure what you did... Did you delete the root line in /etc/passwd or what do you mean with "deleted root"?

Did you install the latest ssh patch? If not you might look for an exploit floating around the net and break in... ;)

Uh, general question to the Engarde-Team: Will you supply a 3.4-Version of OpenSSH as the 3.3 is not really fixed...

Guess that depends on what you actually did!
