Hmm ... a certain lack of fact checking on the Link resulted in wild

at. Those making wild claims against said vendor's products should
apologise, at least until another day ;-)

Thank you for the note. Over the weekend, a DNS server at one of our ISPs
was compromised, allowing the URL www.rsa.com <http://www.rsa.com> to be
redirected to a spoofed site. None of our corporate Web servers were
by the hackers and our main site (http://www.rsasecurity.com/
<http://www.rsasecurity.com/> ) was not affected in any way. We're fully
aware of what has occurred and are working with our ISP to rectify the
situation and implement precautionary measures for the future.
