ISPs are removing encryption from customers' emails



  • This may not be the appropriate location for this post. If so Please move to a more appropriate Category. This morning I got an email from a friend referring me to an EFF article regarding the stripping of a security flag (called STARTTLS) from email traffic by some U.S. and Thai ISPs. This goes unnoticed mostly because it is targeted to [b]Residential [/b]customers. Of course no names are mentioned... There are possibly some good intentions here (spam and phishing prevention) but with possibly unintended consequences. And remember that: [quote]the Road to Hell is paved with Good Intentions[/quote]. The whole article can be read here: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2014/11/starttls-downgrade-attacks Just thought I'd let you know.
