This should actually be called "Nobody Is That Dumb ... Oh, Wait! Journalists are!" or "Do you talk to your co-processor often?"
Check out the amazing quote from this "article": "Rule No. 5: Develop technical partnerships with other people who can write exploits. Become part of the security research community, whose members can be found at conferences, mailing lists or RIC (real-time interface coprocessor) channels, Aitel suggests."
See anything fuckingly :-) wrong with this?
My enlightened colleague certainly didn't recommend that you talk to youR coprocessor often :-) Somewhere IRC became RIC and the assclown writing the paper looked it up (probably like this) and "thought" 'Oh, I now know what RIC means' ...
Result? Hilarity ensues! :-)
