Thank you for the prompt response Vignesh. I remember reading about this
issue a few months back and it's good to see that there's a fix in the
works. Honestly, since I don't require 'rock solid' security (my life
isn't in danger if my identity leaks and I use PGP on my important
emails anyway), I'm not that concerned about it. Also, since the only
data leaked seems to be the local datetime, I'd think it's not a massive
concern since my local datetime is shared with a few million other people.

Thanks again!
