i read at&t write that this was a rehash of a previously known issue.

i heard at&t tell a customer that they were in no hurry to patch.

that's good news.

hopefully at&t will issue a clarifying statement, indicating that they know
now that this is not a rehash of last year's update, and that they will have
those iphones covered by july 25 even though they were noticed before july 8.

by the way we just found an [email protected] mailbox protected by challenge-response
(there's a notification effort underway to let folks know which of their open
resolvers are unpatched.  i don't know what this means anymore.)
