I think that a link would have been a more appropriate way to send out
this report. The attached PDF was 875K which is too big for an email

Subject: [Full-Disclosure] Daniel Geer, author of cybersecurity resigns

As many of you may or may not know, a report was released which was
highly critical of M$. The lead author of this report was Daniel Geer,
CTO of @stake. @stake is a partner in the Trustworthy Computing
Initiative. Soon after this report was released, Mr.. Geer was given his
walking papers. I believe that Microsoft had a hand in his resignation,
and as such represents a bad precedent.

While I do not believe this group should abandon its efforts to secure
the Windows OS, this news is very troubling to me.

Enclosed is copy of the report for all to read.
