I think what I wrote came across the wrong way. What I meant was that Hostgator
continues to act as if they have inside information from the anti-sec group or
a copy of the "exploit". It is very annoying - they (hostgator) need
to stop using phrases like:

"CBC SSH Exploit"

"Since the exploit uses CBC Ciphers..."

These indicate they have a copy of something they are not sharing.
Very annoying and
wrong if they actually do have a copy of something (unlikely).
