[ale] Linode hacked, CCs and passwords leaked

Credit card numbers...  The private key is itself encrypted with passphrase
encryption and the complex passphrase is not stored electronically.  ...
 We have no evidence decrypted credit card numbers were obtained.

Do the crackers have the public and private keys?

And if that  /. link to irc stuff is right, they have the public and
private keys.  So how long will it takes to brute force a passphrase.  Not
long I assume...
