Sorry for the double-reply but additionally, is that the only place
where this issue exists? I'm not even sure what you mean by the
'extraction phase'- do you mean when building the vserver? If you're
building it new it seems unlikely that it's a compramised vserver. Does
this affect Debian users at all (who use Debian in their vservers)?
