Privacy, Security, Encryption "Jon Ellch was one of the presenters of the now infamous 'faux disclosure' at Black Hat and DEFCON last month. Ellch and co-presenter Dave Maynor have gone silent since then, fueling speculation that the entire presentation may have been a hoax. Ellch finally broke the silence in an email to the Daily Dave security mailing list over the weekend, and one thing is clear: he is chafing under the cone of silence which has been placed over the two of them."

This is a good reason to have anonymous posts to security sites. This isnt the first time that big business has squashed a bug announcement to save face. All the while exposing their customers, who they are supposed to be looking out for, to a serious security threat. Another reason for a free and open source code base. bugs get fixed in a timely manner, especially when they are serious.
