Bruce Schneier seems to have lots to say today about things of interest to the free software community. Here
is an essay he wrote about the DNS vulnerability—for which the details have leaked—that originally appeared in Wired. We also covered the secrecy issue
surrounding the flaw in early July. "Of course, the details leaked. How isn't important; it could have leaked a zillion different ways. Too many people knew about it for it to remain secret. Others who knew the general idea were too smart not to speculate on the details. I'm kind of amazed the details remained secret for this long; undoubtedly it had leaked into the underground community before the public leak two days ago.
