In September, Ian Goldberg and I pointed out a flaw in Netscape's security; their cryptographic PRNG was poorly seeded. This page lists more information on our attack.

Our original email was sent to the cypherpunks mailing list. Later I posted a small clarification. More information is available at other sites.

Community ConneXion gave us a t-shirt for our efforts: what more can a grad student ask for?

Our discovery temporarily thrust us in the media limelight. Check out our virtual interview! (A local copy is also available.)

Netscape also caught some publicity; here is their response to our attack and their fix.

We wrote an article for Dr. Dobb's Journal entitled Randomness and the Netscape Browser with all the technical information. There is also a page which goes with the article.
