PGP Fail (14May2018)

Freewheeling spot to chew the fat on anything cryptostorm-related that doesn't fit elsewhere (i.e. support, howto, &c.). Criticism & praise & brainstorming & requests for explanation... this is where it goes when it's hot & ready for action! :-)

PGP Fail (14May2018)

Post by FoodMaven » Mon May 14, 2018 9:48 pm

Late Sunday 13May18, I read that PGP's crypto is broken. I post this here as an FYI.

OpenPGP and S/MIME leak plaintext of encrypted emails.
