I didn't hear this? Anyone know a source for this possibly confused


Also compromised is the Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA) -- developed by
the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology -- which is supposed
to protect the transfer of information over the Internet. And there's a
nifty new JavaScript security hole that lets anyone who sends an email see
exactly what the recipient said when that e-mail is forwarded onto another
