Hi All,

To throw a little chicken little into what is otherwise a beautiful weekend,

A google translation says:
"The federal government declared that its secret services were basically able to decrypt PGP and Secure Shell, at least partially."


Apparently, GnuPG list and others merely have links to this article, I haven't found anything more except links to this vague original article.

Thoughts?  Is tomorrow morning's commute to work going to look like that new Brad Pitt movie, *or*, are we looking at a dopey expose of well-known widespread worst-practices in cryptographic misunderstandings?
