Default Code Kept Secret for Years Reveals Its Flawa Backdoor

From wired.com/story/tetra-radio-encryption-backdoor/:
Quote:
FOR MORE THAN 25 years, a technology used for critical data and voice radio communications around the world has been shrouded in secrecy to prevent anyone from closely scrutinizing its security properties for vulnerabilities. But now it’s finally getting a public airing thanks to a small group of researchers in the Netherlands who got their hands on its viscera and found serious flaws, including a deliberate backdoor.

Nice Post!
Normally I would say "makes you wonder what else is out there?" But in today's world I know there is much more out there that is flawed by design or implemented for economic reasons. Of course they are exploited by those 3 lettered agencies, and anyone else with technological knowledge and a reason.
