Well, not so fast :(

I didn't followed the RNGs analysis closely (I pick my
randomness elsewhere), but I just stumble upon this paper:

saying that neither regular /dev/urandom nor /dev/random
are safe (& suggesting an attack against AES-128 CTR mode 
could succeed in only 2^64 attempts).

This is a 2013 paper :(

<OMG_CSS> nothing, that's just a typo because
          "T" and "G" are too close on a keyboard.
<Mang'z> ok thks.
