"WhatsApp was hacked and attackers installed spyware on people’s phones" - https://www.businessinsider.com/whatsapp-hacked-attackers-installed-spyware-2019-5 #Privacy #Security #WhatsApp
@lucy This is what happens with proprietary software. :)
@hund ...And still most remain using and supporting this thing owned by Fac3book...
Then again Spydows 10 has caused trouble of such scale that at least from that mess many are switching!
@Linux Let's hope that this makes any difference. :)
@hund Telegram is a good choice "along the way", i think, towards the final solutions such as Matrix / Riot.im ...
Just that Riot on mobile is still no 1.0 and in itself very confusing for even seasoned user!
The desktop version of Riot is starting to be spot on
Here's how the Matrix team are assessing this for the future:
"We will provide a proper postmortem, including follow-up steps; meanwhile we are obviously going to take measures to improve the security of our production infrastructure, including patching services more aggressively and more regular vulnerability scans."
I see no meaningful difference in development effort based on the data format that would justify implementation of a protocol with design flaws.
@hund Big brain: hacking into spyware to install more spyware.
@hund ooo sh*t
@hund well, I just updated it, did you?
@techit I don't even use it. :)
Thats new to me.
I also try not to use them, but I still use it to talk with people that dine have telegram and signal
@techit I don't use Telegram or Signal either. :D It's not easy being the person outside of the norm though.
Yes, I feel it hard a hit not using Instagram to know whats going on on my friends life.
But in the same time,
They made it very addictive for their silly uses.
I prefer not to give up all my time, like my classmates, who looses all of their time with some high dopamine nonstop addiction.....):
@techit It sucks. :/
@hund anybody have a WIRE account?
@hund I'd love to use other chat services, but all of my frienda and families still use whatsapp and line 😥
@hund anybody have a good alternative, with many users?
@hund what i "love" about this is any lack of detectio and removal for this kit. Given this is operated by nation states i guess they don't want people to remove the troyan
Linux Geeks doing what Linux Geeks do..
