Mallory the GnuPG fiend

When you generate a revocation certificate for your GnuPG key, the message refers to Mallory (Please move [the certificate] to a medium which you can hide away; if Mallory gets access to this certificate he can use it to make your key unusable), the classic cryptography name for the miscreant menace. Somehow I don't think we have much to worry about from this Mallory, though.

And yes, I've been chatty today--it's been quite a while since I could blog this easily.
