Summary: 
In this paper, we study partial key exposure attacks on RSA where the number of unexposed blocks of the private key is greater than or equal to one. This situation, called generalized framework of partial key exposure attack, was first shown by Sarkar [22] in 2011. Under a certain condition for the values of exposed bits, we present a new attack which needs fewer exposed bits and thus improves the result in [22]. Our work is a generalization of [28], and the approach is based on Coppersmith's method and the technique of unravelled linearization.
