Have you really deleted *all* the vulnerable keys, ie. user keys and
(As root run "ssh-vulnkey -a" to check for vulnerable keys. )
Delete all vulnerable keys, ie. all that were generated or could
possibly be created with the affected versions of openssh/openssl.
Create new keys.
Debian won't allow log in of users or machines with vulnerable keys.
NB: Be careful, if you have to do this via ssh to a remote box. You
might not be able to log into that box, if you commit a mistake.
