“…this new single-minded focus on CSAM in the revived anti-encryption push feels like an exceedingly cynical move on the part of the U.S. government … One proposal … is to build a system where the provider … would check content … before it’s encrypted and transmitted … i.e. while the content is on the sender’s device … to try to figure out whether that content is or might be abusive content such as CSAM.” – Riana Pfefferkorn, Oct 7,

Almost 5,000 people – security & privacy experts, cryptographers, researchers, professors, legal experts and Apple customers – have signed the open letter to decry Apple’s plans to undermine privacy and end-to-end encryption.

Apple has called us “the screeching voice of the minority.”

Join us! Let’s show King Tim what the screeching minority thinks of his plans to violate personhood in the digital network age.

[RT @SarahJamieLewis]
When you boil it down, Apple has proposed your phone become black box that may occasionally file reports on you that may aggregate such that they contact the relevant authorities.

It doesn't matter how or why they built that black box or even what the false positive rate may be

Daily reminder that for many blind people, #Apple is the most useful and productive mobile operating system. It's not that Android is hard to use, but when text selection, especially on the web and in email, is from hard to impossible, and when one cannot spell check what they've written, and typing is either a minor annoyance (braille (input not registering sometimes) onscreen keyboard (very slow usually) external keyboard (yet another device to manage)), you begin to understand why people who don't enjoy customization, or getting the "most" out of a device choose iOS, especially for accessibility, and the AI of image recognition and such. And FOSS phones, like the PinePhone, won't be accessible until Orca/ATSPI can communicate with touch screens, and that won't happen without developers.

So, when you get that urge to say "I told you so you Apple sheeple, you should have been using FOSS!" Try to remember that some people don't have much of a choice.

@kuketzblog Wie kritisch schätzt du solche Sicherheitsprobleme ein: news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2 ?

Und ab welchem Punkt sollte man ein Produkt mit dieser Art Fehler nicht mehr nutzen?

Introducing Threema OnPrem: The self-contained chat environment for high-security enterprise messaging. threema.ch/bp/onprem

@kuketzblog Was meinst du zu Brave Search?
Ein eigener Index ist für mich ein grosses Plus gegenüber DDG, aber dein Review vom Browser war ja eher schlecht.

No one can decrypt a Threema message except the intended recipient. However: On our website, there’s a special message anyone can decrypt. threema.ch 🐇

It’s always a good time to upgrade to seriously secure messaging, but for Huawei users, now is the perfect time to get Threema.

Only for a short time. 🏃💨

Beiträge die länger sind als zwei Toots müssen für mich persönlich schon extrem relevate Infos enthalten damit ich sie bis zum Ende lese.

Threema evaluiert, ob es eine F-Droid-Version des Messengers ohne proprietäre Abhängigkeiten (Google und Co.) geben wird. Interessant.

Was meint ihr, wird irgendwann die Zeit kommen, in der Unternehmen aufhören mit Bullshit-Bingo und Marketing-Floskeln ihre Kunden zu verarschen/hinter's Licht zu führen? Oder wird es zukünftig noch schlimmer? 😵

🙈🙉🙊 → Shouldn’t be your attitude when choosing a chat app. Should be the attitude of the chat app you choose.

Der auf GitHub einsehbare Signal-Server-Quellcode ist ziemlich veraltet. Der letzte Commit ist über 9 Monate her. Da dürfte gerne mal ein Update her...
