Default SSH private key gives attackers access to BIG-IP appliances

From http://h-online.com/-1616936

After networking equipment specialist F5 Networks warned of a vulnerability in numerous network appliances on Tuesday, further details of the flaw that allowed attackers to log into devices at root privilege level have now emerged. F5 said that the situation was caused by a configuration error, but Florent Daigniere from Matta Consulting has identified an SSH private key as the cause.
