Dan not telling us what he found: fine.
Dan telling the press he found something awesome: fine.
Dan arguing that for the good of the Internet, the public can't know
what he found until he gets on stage at Black Hat: fine.
Dan and Paul Vixie telling people they can't go find it themselves
because they're running a secret cabal that has decided that certain
ISPs get to know what the vulnerability is, but some of the world's
largest financial institutions don't? NOT FINE.
What can I do about it? Nothing.
Am I pissed at Dan about it? No. His finding, his terms.
Do I feel bad about the hits Dan is taking? Grow the fuck up.
