I assume you mean
In this case i have to share the thanks with David Christensen, who
reported the bug and bravely tested, and Martin Str|mberg, who produced
the fixed code.

The vulnerable BIOSes seem to be more widespread than thought.
The fixed MBR code piece
is said to be available only for a limited time.
Be so kind and write a mail to 857597@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx which tells
that David Christensen is not the only one who has a needy computer.
Consider to support my proposal in
"I propose that Debian gets it too and offers it for download together
with a description what problem it might fix and how to apply it.
If it gets a Debian URL and if i get pointed to an empty wiki page,
i would volunteer to write the description."
Have a nice day :)
