This is old news though.
Why are people  getting all up in arms 'now' ... just because there are
traces that there is an exploit going around?

There is also a great writeup on this at : 

Dont turn off sshd, read the advisory, is your server affected?


If there is a worm going around, and you don't want to possibly be
affected and you don't want to patch your system ....the worm would
probably attack the standard ssh port ( 22 ), change the port ssh listens
on if your worried..
