Default Weak keys in NetBSD

From http://h-online.com/-1829336

Quote:
A serious random number generator issue has been found in the free NetBSD Unix derivative that recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. The flaw potentially causes systems to generate weak, crackable cryptographic keys. Apparently, the culprit is a misplaced parenthesis in the NetBSD kernel's source code. The developers have released a kernel update to fix the issue. They also recommend that users urgently replace any keys that were generated with NetBSD 6.0 or NetBSD-Current. The error will be fixed in NetBSD 6.1.
