Maybe I wasn't clear here, but I think your change modifies logic here.
After your change I read it as "if an attacker can remember the data, he
can also write them back" and my intention was: "if an attacker can
remember the data and can write them back..."
In other words, beeing able to read the data, doesn't imply beeing able
to write them back.
I meant "he can write them back undetected" there.
Could you change it to be understandable?:)
