Speaking of being paranoid:
Make sure you delete all copies of the keyring that still contain the
old passphrase. And "delete != rm" here. "delete == shred(1)" at the
least or better: "delete == shred(physically) && burn".
In July, [...] the FBI arrested a Russian computer security researcher
who had presented a paper on the strengths and weaknesses of software
used to protect electronic books. Dmitry Sklyarov [...] landed in jail
because the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) makes publishing
critical research on this technology a more serious offense than
publishing nuclear weapon designs.
