Blinkenlights a security hazard!?

Well, saw the news item on /., but it didn’t really make a connection until I hit the BeBox Zone. Our BeBoxes – the older, authentic BeBoxes – could have a security problem. Seems it may be possible to determine data being processed by watching LEDs. Sound crazy? Well, the BeBox part might be, since it is only processing CPU usage, not data being shot across, say, a network interface. But hit link to the actual paper from the BeBox Zone if you want to see what we are talking about.
