GPG Keys Replaced

After the new flaw found in the SHA-1 algorithm, I revoked my old 1024-bit DSA keys 3CF79EB5A445A8F1 (personal stuff) and 6C6EECCDDA5B38DD (GLM stuff).

My new key is EFFAB77E092DD1E2 and you can download it from keyservers such as hkp:// or hkp:// This new key has been signed with my old keys, to help you decide if you could trust it.

Cracked last week

My VPS provider was cracked last week by an attacker who removed everything on the host machines (yes, the frightening “rm -rf /”!), so my sites (including had been down until yesterday night.

The attack was performed on Sunday, but I had to wait until Friday to get a new server (fortunately I don’t host anything sensitive here). Then I spent two more days setting up the new server from scratch (not that it was too complex, but I didn’t have much time to do it). That’s why it took so much time for the sites to be back.

I believe that everything on the repoze.what website and the documentation for my Repoze plugins has been restored. But if you find anything broken (e.g., if an URL changed), please let me know.
