Hello.  I was reading this page, , and I
found this comment near the end of it in the section entitled "How does this
whole thing work?":  "There is a small security glitch in the OpenPGP (and
therefore GnuPG) system; to avoid this you should always sign and encrypt a
message instead of only encrypting it."  If this is still applicable, would
you explain what the small glitch is?  Are there any other small glitches
explained elsewhere, which I may not have noticed?  There is a lot of
documentation, and I am hoping to absorb it as much as I can. Thanks.
