List members who have an interest in cryptography (RSA, in particular) may find the following two papers interesting:

1. "On authenticated computing and RSA-based authentication"

2. "Seifert's RSA fault attack:  simplified analysis and generalizations"

The papers show that if an adversary can flip a few bits of an RSA modulus stored inside a computer, then there is a good chance that they can force the computer to accept a signature on an unauthorized message.

The Xbox is mentioned in both papers.
