"Michael Righi of Pittsburgh said he discovered a flaw in the Cobalt RaQ servers that lets malicious users enter the system..."
"Cobalt Networks developed the RaQ as a low-cost, low-maintenance Web server for the ISP market."
"Vivek Mehra, vice president of product development at Cobalt, said the hole, which could give a hacker access to a history file documenting a user's activities, wasn't specific to their appliance, but to the Linux operating system. Righi disagreed and said RaQ's default settings are to blame."
