I think they mean that your private key material is compromised, meaning
"þey"[1] can decrypt any future messages encrypted to that key. Sloppily
formulated, but I don't think they mean you've lost your crypto virginity <grin>.

I agree with the rest of what you say, they are full of crap. Just nitpicking here.


[1] Hey, I just thought of a way to ominously spell "they" as a sort of
three-letter agency thingy; just use a thorn!

I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
