Got this from RM this morning, do you think that

playing with LINUX?
Yep. Netcraft says it's a Linux box. On the offchance I tried a
telnet, an the telnet prompt reports kernel 2.0.33. They're running
Apache on it as well.
2.0.33? Hopefully they've changed the prompt, when was 2.0.33 out?
Then again, hopefully your telnet connection went to a completely
different box that's sitting there waiting to catch potential hackers.
I won't probe further, but I rather think someone
there needs a
meaty application of the clue stick; an obviously unused web server
is running with the default pages, and telnet is open. Betcha other
stuff is open that shouldn't be....
OK, two courses of action:
ONE - considering that RM is a target for all those disgrunted
students of yours struggling with puberty / being a teenager / etc
someone with access to RM support phone numbers and email addresses
should have a word with RM *real soon*.
TWO - Roger puts up a promise of a copy of SuSE 6.5 as the prize,
first list subscriber to change the telnet prompt to "This host has
been annexed by the SuSE Linux schools mailing list" wins :)
