According to https://gist.github.com/rjhansen/67ab92 ... nt-2959168 some TOR-associated keys are affected as well. Since Giorgio does some work associated with Tor browser, I wonder if Giorgio would think it'd be prudent for him to make a known-good copy of his PGP key available for download on https://maone.net/ in light of this?
