Unfortunately I can't tell you any details because the paper has not yet
been published.  The attack is not easy to mount but it is not entirely
academic.  It affects the standard for sending private keys and not any
specific implementation.

The OpenPGP DT knows about it for nearly a year but they are busy
nitpicking on details of the 4880bis and spending way to much time
handling and discussing editorial issues and non chartered features.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
