Turns out paranoia is just another name for a good guess.

The only thing that surprises me is the number of people who didn't see this coming. It's been five years since that fiber intercept room was outed in San Fransisco. No legal action came of that, so why would they change course. Since 2003 it seems.

I find the requests for private ssl keys far more disturbing though, as it has the potential to destroy encryption on public networks entirely. Leak one of those keys and a malicious attacker can spy on encrypted data without ever alerting users. Think about how many sites you could compromise with GoDaddy's private keys.

Quote:

This past Sunday evening former NSA contractor Edward Snowden sat down for an interview with German television network ARD. The interview has been intentionally blocked from the US public, with virtually no major broadcast news outlets covering this story. In addition, the video has been taken down almost immediately every time itís posted on YouTube.


It's not short, but I thought it was worth the time.

the only evidence he gives in the entire article that they had any idea it was there is this "two people familiar with the matter said."

I know keeping sources confidential is a big matter in journalism but just finding 2 blokes who claim they know is not enough in my book.

There has been a security firm working to see if exploiting this bug is even possible, and so far on any server with sufficient traffic and memory as to not be more than 10 years old at this stage they cannot retrieve anything useful without a ddos style attempt to retrieve large buffers of incomplete data with no ordering.

I'm not saying the bug is no big deal but that article presents nothing to even suggest they attempted to exploit the issue or that there was a decision made to not report it.
