That was the very reason we wanted full disclosure list created because
things like this do get leaked, and if people are armed with knowledge,
they can defend. I am sorry that the public leak may cause SuSE problems,
I can appreciate the pressure it places on the team.

I know that with the current team at SuSE we're in good hands :)
