    The article linked made reference to using an exploit on someone else's machine. These types of posts are against the forum rules:

    The obvious way to keep yourself from being a victim of this particular attack is to turn off SSH access to your machine and NEVER give access to your physical computer to anyone you don't absolutely trust. This is true for any operating system.
