Better read the press release again.  No CODE was released by RSA, 
only the ALGORITHM was released.  Bsafe and RSAREF are still
copyrighted and owned by RSA.  They still intend to defend
that ownership.

OpenSSH/OpenSSL use their own rsa implementation, so
RSA can defend their dead code as long as they want.
