Trojaner „FinSpy“ knackt #WhatsApp, Signal, Threema und #Telegram

Sicherheitsexperten von #Kaspersky sind auf diese neue Version gestossen, welche nicht nur die Nachrichten auf diversen Messengern protokolliert, sondern auch Kamera und Mikrofon aktivieren kann, auch die Kontake, SMS-Nachrichten, E-Mails, Kalender, GPS-Standort, Fotos, Dateien im Speicher und Sprachnachrichten können überwacht werden.

Was diesen überaus professionellen Trojaner so besonders macht, ist nicht nur seine umfangreichen Überwachungsmöglichkeiten, sondern auch, wer ihn programmierte: nämlich nicht etwa ein paar Underground-Hacker, sondern die deutsche Firma „Gamma Group„. Jene verkauft den Trojaner über eine Tochtergesellschaft in Großbritannien an Regie

Signal Fails By Northshore Counter Info - June 3, 2019 - 1968 views

Critical discussion about the use of the Signal app in autonomous and anarchist circles.

Signal is an encrypted messaging service that has been around in different forms for about 10 years. Since then, I have seen the software widely adopted by anarchist networks across Canada and the United States. More and more, for better and for worse, our interpersonal and group conversations have moved onto the Signal platform, to the extent that it has become the dominant way anarchists communicate with each other on this continent, with very little public debate about the implications.

Schlechter, wahrscheinlich unsicherer, zentralisiert, weniger Funktionen, Beschränkungen und nicht quelloffen, aber macht mal weiter so, irgendwann dreht dann jemand diese Messenger ab oder schaltet die Verschlüsselung mit Hintertüre ein.

#signal is not secure for a bunch of reasons inc. key exchange, requirement of a phone number and often the use of an OS with back doors. #cia works around the "app" to grab shots. See #vault7 for technical details. @eff should quit recommending it.

@balouqlc @favstarmafia @nipos Es liegt nicht nur am Geld oder an dem Nerdkram. Der Apple Store ist nicht mit allen Lizenzen vereinbar. Wenn einzelne Module der Apps mit #GPL lizensiert sind, dann kann das schon schwierig werden. Das war auch meiner Meinung nach das Problem mit #Signal (omemo). Ganz so tief stecke ich nicht in der Materie aber es liegt nicht immer am Willen der Entwickler. ChatSecure, finde ich, ist nicht nutzbar.

Hi diaspora

(fr bellow)

I was wondering about #secure #messaging app. Is #Signal still a good choice in 2019 (regarding its tight bound to Google)? I was looking to other competitors, like #Wire, which seems more reliable : https://www.securemessagingapps.com/

Does someone has some day to day experience with Wire? Is it good enough?

Thanks!
Coucou diaspora…

je me posais la question (comme fréquemment) du choix de #messagerie #sécurisée. Le temps passe et je voulais savoir si en 2019 Signal était toujours si intéressant que ça (je pense au lien étroit avec Google), vis-à-vis de la concurrence et Wire en particulier ?

Sur le papier Wire me semble plus fiable https://www.securemessagingapps.com/

Après qu’en est-il de son utilisation quotidienne ? Quelqu’un a des retours ?

Merci beaucoup :)

Matrix Riot


Ich überlege ersthaft #Threema , #Signal und #Wire zu deinstallieren.
Die #Messenger sind nicht schlecht aber da ich kein Google Netzwerk nutze, ziehen die ganzen Messenger ordentlich am Akku.
Riot bietet mir alles was ich brauche Audio / Video und Chat für 1:1 und für Gruppen. Datenversand, E2E Verschlüsselung, etc.

Ein weiterer Pluspunkt ist OpenSource und dies auch bis zum Server. Ich hoste den Matrix Server bei mir Zuhause. Die anderen Messenger sind teilweise auch OpenSource aber der Server meist nicht.

Signal Messenger Has A Clever New Way To Shield Your Identity - A "sealed sender" Feature


A key part of what makes Signal the leading encrypted messaging app is its effort to minimize the amount of data or metadata each message leaves behind. The messages themselves are fully encrypted as they move across Signal's infrastructure, and the service doesn't store logs of information like who sends messages to each other, or when. On Monday, the nonprofit that develops Signal announced a new initiative to take those protections even further. Now, it hopes to encrypt even information about which users are messaging each other on the platform.

"While the service always needs to know where a message should be delivered, ideally it shouldn’t need to know who the sender is," Moxie Marlinspike, the creator of Signal, wrote on Monday. "It would be better if the service could handle packages where only the destination is written on the outside, with a blank space where the 'from' address used to be."

#Skype is so ubiquitous and #privacy ignored by the vast, vast, majority, I don’t see a way to avoid using it. Signal is the best solution I have been able to find to protect #SMS, phone conversations, chats, and #VOIP. I have recently been successful in getting a handful of my friends and family to use it.

Primarily though blackmail.

Leider kann ich die #Desktopversion von #Signal nicht installieren, weil dafür Windows 64-bit erforderlich ist und ich Windows 32-bit habe.

Deshalb würde mich interessieren, wie ich einen #Link vom #Desktop kopieren und auf dem Smartphone in eine Signal-Nachricht einfügen kann.

Ich habe auf meinem Android-Smartphone jetzt #Signal installiert und möchte es auch auf meinem 32-Bit-Windows Desktop installieren. Leider finde ich die entsprechende Installationsdatei nicht. Gibt es sie überhaupt? Bei meiner Suche landete ich immer wieder bei der Installationsdatei für die 64-Bit-Windows.
 
Well they don't have to pay, #Signal is financed by donations.
 
#Signal is not as successful as #WhatApp because it really seems to suck on #Apple #iOS.
I don't have a poisoned fruit device, but I always hear that Signal is not as nice as WhatsApp from those that took bite of the Apple. #Signal

Like many others, we have been following the latest developments in Australia related to the “Assistance and Access” bill with a growing sense of frustration. The widespread adoption of strong cryptography and end-to-end encryption has given people around the world the ability to protect their personal information and communicate securely. Life is increasingly lived online, and the everyday actions of billions of people depend on this foundation remaining strong.

Attempting to roll back the clock on security improvements which have massively benefited Australia and the entire global community is a disappointing development.

Design for a world that is sometimes disappointing

More than eight years have passed since we released the public beta of what is now known as Signal. Throughout the entire development process, the project has faced resistance from people who struggle to understand end-to-end encryption or who seek to weaken its effects. This is not a new dynamic.

Signal, one of the most secure messaging apps, essentially told Australia this week that its attempts to thwart strong crypto are rather cute.

"By design, Signal does not have a record of your contacts, social graph, conversation list, location, user avatar, user profile name, group memberships, group titles, or group avatars," Joshua Lund, a Signal developer wrote. "The end-to-end encrypted contents of every message and voice/video call are protected by keys that are entirely inaccessible to us. In most cases now we don’t even have access to who is messaging whom."

It is really not helpful if a #messenger just tells "Could not send message" and you have to manually press retry till it does. How about you implement A FUCKING RETRY DURATION THAT IS ACCEPTABLE LONG? Give the user a feedback after a longer time (10 minutes) and ask if the user still wants to send the message, also give the users an option to cancel the sending. Why is is so hard to make it usable? #Signal #Skype
