The recent announcement of Jon Callas et al. was - in my eyes - not

catastrophic: Even the (normally pretty conservative) Heise Verlag
published panic articles that "all automatic encrypt/decrypt systems
based on OpenPGP are broken"!

Since when is the Heise Newsticker "pretty conservative"? If they can draw 
attention to their website they will do it. 

You're free to contact them and ask for an update of that article... ;-)
