Two comments on word usage in this essay:

Note: the text of e-mail containing malicious programsoften contains ungrammatical text,punctuation errors, or misspelled words,because the author is a non-native speaker of English.

@JR: There's not so much to confirm, it's all plausible and they certainly have the manpower and equipment to demonstrate a full break. The Radboud group's interest was sparked by our 24C3 talk, where we intentionally didn't give all algorithmic details in order to have a process of responsible disclosure. The Radboud group filled in the missing bits on their own, so they have known the full algorithm for some time (I think since about spring this year). They then developed some attacks of their own, which probably are different from the Courtois/Nohl/O'Neill attack, but similarly potent.

However as far as the police are concerned the person was in the area the rest as they say is "what you make of it" and as has just been seen the Met Police are not averse to presenting false and misleading evidence against people of less than average IQ and getting them locked up instead of the finding the real criminal (see stuff about Jill Dando's killing and the recent aquital of the man who has spent the last eight years behind bars).

Wikipedia article about the different MIFARE chips:

Would it be reasonable for someone to walk around in the parking lot, letting some air out of tires, so tires are seriously underinflated, with the justification that the ensuing accidents will call attention to the problem of underinflated tires?
