As Robin Wilton discussed a few days ago in Roca: Encryption Vulnerability and What to do About It, yet another security vulnerability has been discovered.

This issue impacts only some limited uses of the keys. For details, see

You can get your ISOC-branded Yubikey 4 replaced at no cost to you by going to this page and following the instructions.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Steve Olshansky, Internet Technology Program Manager, at <[email protected]>.
