This article came out on Reuters yesterday

Apparently RSA built a backdoor into their encryption for $10 million from the NSA. I fear that this will cause our economy in the US to plummet because nobody will trust software & hardware manufactured in the US.

Well....RSA has lost all public trust now. Seeing as they're a company that manufactures security tools...trust is a big thing for them, and I don't see how they'll stay afloat now.

I'd love to see what happens to RSA stock...but they're not a public company!

 

I really do doubt that they'll stay in the business where trust is key after this leak.
