Looks like a bad hole that needs fixing there. I don't recall what KH uses, but is this a potential concern for us?

Thanks.
No worries at KnownHost. We don't use the cheap software like some other hosts. We'd rather pay for quality and in turn our clients can provide quality. Hope my bluntness makes sense. I figured it would be best to get to the point. :)

Bluntness understood! I honestly don't know what KH uses for virtualization, so I figured I'd bring it up and mention it. ;) Plus, it could be something useful to a reader on the forums.

Thanks for the 'to-the-point' response!

They are saying on the forum of the company that made the VM product that the owner of the company has committed suicide.

So it seems. I'm reading through some posts on their forums and it looks like everyone was talking about the security issues over the past few days. There was this post on Monday:

"As far as i know, Lxlabs is still runned by one person.
What will happen if he gets ill or worse....
Nobody has the source code and nothing can be changed anymore."
Well, looks like the worse happened...
