Boffins: Mixed-signal silicon can SCREAM your secrets to all

Not Unexpected

Oh, dear. But this shouldn't come as a surprise. Crypto gear used by governments, after all, has shielding between the parts that handle unenciphered data and the enciphered data that is to be sent out over the air. It's not possible to put different parts of the same chip in separate metal boxes.

Someone with a reciever and fancy gear within a few metres of you, though, isn't in most people's threat models, fortunately.
