Submission + - New hole discovered in Windows Encryption (israelnationalnews.com)

awacs writes: Haifa U. researchers found a new hole in Windows 2000. The exploit, which involves deducing generated random numbers to crack encryption, may also appear in XP and Vista. The exploit not only allows cracking of future encrypted sessions, but also of past information stored and even items no longer on the computer, the article says. There's a white paper available for download at http://eprint.iacr.org/2007/419
