    I tried to read that sfuff, but it made no sense.

    A brief summary of what actually happened would be very helpful :)

    Apparently he was monitoring his firewall and saw outbound connection to Canadian Secret Intelligence Agency. So he thinks he's backdoored.

    On twitter he said he had a meeting with agents and they said cryptocat is a threat to national security.

    Thanks.

    An intelligence agency would probably use anonymous IPs for that, right?

    And conversely, people have posted TLA links on Wilders ;)

    So, encryption is illegal in Canada now? Good to know. Since RIM and Hushmail are still operating...Hmmmm...LOL.

    He was joking, I think: saying that those services would still be around because they don't really use encryption ;)

    Yes, joking. Know all about Hush. I didn't mean 'no' encryption...just that it probably doesn't matter, if you know what I mean :D

    I don't see the big deal, off course the government is interested in crypto.
