While this again much confirms my opinion of the value of security
certification programs (although the fact that it was CC did surprise me
slightly, I would have expected it from FIPS 140 but I thought CC was a bit
better than that), I wonder what'll happen to the certification?  Will it be
withdrawn, or will the issue just be ignored.
