The article does acknowledge it as old news, but says

"At the time, the company called reports that it was a secret asset of Western intelligence agencies 'an unbelievable conspiracy theory,' according to a report in German magazine Focus detailing a 1994 book on the subject.

After being told late last year of fresh research about the company, the Swiss government in January appointed a former Swiss Supreme Court judge to scrutinise Crypto's activities "to investigate and clarify the facts of the matter", the defence ministry said in a statement."

Anyway, do these count as major media?
