    I dunno if posting this article was a good idea? You’ve now given someone who may have access to a secure Linux machine the tools (AND instructions!) on how to gain information that the probably shouldn’t have.

    But thanks for the article nonetheless….knowing what I now know after reading this article?…I will do what I can to prevent this from ever being able to run on my Linux boxes. (I guess memory encryption? or just find a way to lock the processes from outside intervention.

      @Eddie G.

      The tool is out there, so any one with malicious thoughts can used it. But we our aim simply to keep Linux users aware of it’s existence and the dangers involved.

      As you have stated, do whatever is possible to prevent this from ever being able to run on your Linux boxes. Thanks for the concern and feedback.
