[alpine-user] OpenRC warning rc_need from rc-status

since a few weeks I'm using Alpine Linux on my PC-Engines APU2 Board. The
System have 3 network cards.
I'm using openssh as ssh-server. I notice that if I restart openssh or print
the service status via rc-status, I get
the following message:

apu2:~# rc-status
 * Caching service dependencies ...
 * You are binding an interface in ListenAddress statement in your
 * You must add rc_need="net.FOO" to your /etc/conf.d/sshd
 * where FOO is the interface(s) providing the following address(es):

I know about the rc_need variable from OpenRC at Gentoo Linux. On Gentoo
Linux I have to make a link to net.lo at
/etc/init.d/ to the specific network device, but on Alpine Linux there are
not such a file net.lo and I have configured
the network via /etc/network/interfaces only, and it works fine.
By the way, also sshd works fine, without the "rc_need=net.FOO". There is
only the message, while the service restarts or I get the rc-status.

I think it could be interesting for developer.

As you may have noticed, I sent you an email from your account.
This means that I have full access to your device.
I've been watching you for a few months now.
The fact is that you were infected with malware through an adult site that you visited.
If you are not familiar with this, I will explain.
Trojan Virus gives me full access and control over a computer or other device.
This means that I can see everything on your screen, turn on the camera and microphone, but you do not know about it.
I also have access to all your contacts and all your correspondence.
Why your antivirus did not detect malware?
Answer: My malware uses the driver, I update its signatures every 4 hours so that your antivirus is silent.
I made a video showing how you satisfy yourself in the left half of the screen, and in the right half you see the video that you watched.
With one click of the mouse, I can send this video to all your emails and contacts on social networks.
I can also post access to all your e-mail correspondence and messengers that you use.
If you want to prevent this,
transfer the amount of $718 to my bitcoin address (if you do not know how to do this, write to Google: "Buy Bitcoin").
My bitcoin address (BTC Wallet) is: 14tfS3yWL2cABhXVJZ97XRhuDXC69aWH6Y
After receiving the payment, I will delete the video and you will never hear me again.
I give you 50 hours (more than 2 days) to pay.
I have a notice reading this letter, and the timer will work when you see this letter.
Filing a complaint somewhere does not make sense because this email cannot be tracked like my bitcoin address.
I do not make any mistakes.
If I find that you have shared this message with someone else, the video will be immediately distributed.
Best regards!
