    So "logging in with a leaked SSH key" is hacking today?

    Who said it was? The article didn't use that word.

    Right. It says "hacked", not "hacking". (cf. the initial posting here.)

    Ah okay, I guess the article was changed, probably in response to you. Michael listening to his readers, that must be a first.

    You are able to hack into SSH just as you are able to perform hacks by using SSH. I'm not sure why that's so difficult to understand.

    Anyways, who would bother penetrating these servers anyway? It's kinda like raiding an orphanage, except a lot less cruel.
