Re: How to guides for bad guys...?

These guys did have some suggestions for mitigation.

But to have an exploitable channel in X.509 certs is a big deal.

I just wonder if someone in the NSA is cursing under their breath that someone found this one. It could have been hiding in plain sight for a long time.

How to guides for bad guys...?
It's good to see researchers pushing the envelope of vulnerabilities, but maybe they should have more patch suggestions before they publish their how-to guides? I know it's not always possible, but it does seem like there's an advantage given to the black hats who are handed these exploits which they can modify as they see fit to evade detection or to make more pernicious.
