actually it looks like you probably will :(
Regarding Openssh -- it's *really* serious. Since the only entropy used
was from getpid(), affected versions of openssh can only generate 1 of
262148 keys. See:
Obviously that is a trivial keyspace to brute-force. Upgrade and regen
keys *immediately*, folks!!
See also http://wiki.debian.org/SSLkeys for details of how to test your
SSH keys for vulnerability.
