end to end encryption
Motherboard has found procurement records detailing Wickr's first public U.S. law enforcement contract.
The news shows what police may do when confronted with robust, end-to-end encryption: turn to hacking the phone itself.
The CEO of Sky Jean-Francois Eap told Motherboard "The unfounded allegations of involvement in criminal activity by me and our company are entirely false."
Sky ECC is a popular, custom encrypted phone with organized crime. Now police say their operation against the company’s users is wider in scope than previously reported.
Sky ECC suggests a complex phishing campaign can explain high-profile arrests the media reported Tuesday.
Emails obtained by Motherboard show an Encrochat co-owner conducting business via overseas companies and bank accounts.
"Calls Chat" is essentially Signal with a different coat of paint.
Twitter was previously exploring end-to-end encrypted direct messages, which would generally give user's more privacy around their communications.
MPC, an encrypted phone company Motherboard revealed as being created by organized crime, "put him on a plate for the Moroccans to pull the trigger."
Google’s Project Zero recently reported the issue, which the Signal maintainers have now fixed.
