Subject: Re: Truly scary SSL 3.0 vuln to be revealed soon:

Yea, reposting a link to an Internationally read news site doesn't seem
like much of an issue.

Posting the exploit code a week ahead of time, maybe, but reposting that
there is a problem in a 15 year protocol that uses parts with known
weaknesses, which was to be released less than 12 hours later, doesn't look
like a problem.

What is this list's policy on Full Disclosure?

What is this list's policy on sourced/unsourced security rumors?

Why do people on lists like this seem to think that censoring themselves
and others will actually do any good. That somehow the oss-security post
will be the straw that broke the camel's back and not the Internationally
read news site (or all the black hat/pirate sites)? How many posts to
oss-security are patient zero for embargo breaking? What about just
responsible for any cracking happening in the real world?

The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of
zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.   -- Justice Louis D. Brandeis
