CryptoCat ( https://crypto.cat/ ) Author : Paranoid & Freaking Out or Being Stalked By Spooks? | Sc3ne
Jared Sperli stashed this in security
So, Nadim Kobeissi, author of the web-based OTR tool Crypto.cat is stating that his computer’s been compromised and it’s been contacting addresses at the Canadian government, including the courts and their equivalent of the CIA (CSIS). Use your own judgement in deciding what’s going on. He seems to be taking it well, and is proceeding with a sane mind. I don’t know what’s going on, but it’s a bit interesting. I won’t call the guy a nut, because invasions of privacy in sensitive matters like cryptography, computer security and the like aren’t impossible. Give his ethnicity and past, I wouldn’t be shocked to hear that it’s true.
