Unless he is merely blowing smoke, it would seem that he discovered
some little twist that makes the known vulnerability much more easily
exploitable than previously assumed. That would explain his statement:
the patch fixes a well known vulnerability, and as a side effect stops
the more serious attack, in effect making it hard to tell what is
involved in that attack from reading the patch.
