    This is really bad, a lot of stuff relies on infineon chips - I've seen estimates that 750000 estonian e-cards are compromised.

    This is why you use open, established libraries (GPG) and not some **** you baked yourself.

    Oh arse. If my RSA token is affected and revoked, that means my remote access is probably going to vanish for a couple of weeks until I can physically hobble across London again to get a new one in person.

    I know that Yubikey 4's are broken, probably a bunch of others too.
