Re: SSL CHALLENGE: ALERT! probable misallocation of keys?
I've been looking at the allocated list of keys, and I notice a possible
problem: One user has allocated 50,000 segements:
0c2b-cf7a NOACK 0c2b 50000 Joe Thomas <[email protected]>
Now, it's possible this fellow has some vast farm of high-speed
workstations, but I doubt it. Finger suggests that this is a linux
box. My suspicion - and let me apologize in advance if I'm wrong - is
that Mr. Thomas thinks he's allocated himself
50,000 keys, whereas he's actually got 838,860,800,000.
Mr Thomas, if you're listening, PLEASE tell us what's going on.
You've reserved 3/4 of the keyspace, and you're going to screw up the
search unless you have an NSA-sized data center.
I suggest we assume this is an error, and remove the block from the
reserved list so that it can be re-allocated.
