Why do you think this is so bad? It's obvious he meant it to be publically
available. It doesn't give an attacker anything useful. And it's nott
like this lan is anything atypical with some intriguing back door. There
are only two ways in:
  1) through his netbsd firewall. You don't need an image of the LAN to
   discover he's running a netbsd firewall. If there's a bug in NetBSD
   that's exploitable, it'l be exploited if he doesn't plug it first.
   And once an attacker's in, there's no mystery to discovering the other
   PCs (if they're even interested in the internal LAN.
  2) sitting at a terminal in his house.
