Automated attack tools and poor selectors can turn anyone into a "random dude" sadly. The TLAs don't bear the costs, nor are they accountable.
It could be more common than we realize, given that most people don't know what happened to them
you mean about the same number of people who are windows users also?
Probably. But more like 90% of everybody but Linux and *BSD users (because maybe there are fewer exploits for those systems).
don't know if posted before but here's what mr schneier's got to say:
That's good advice. But maybe what's changed since 2013 is #3. NSA has automated a lot since then, I gather
#4. Be suspicious of commercial encryption software, especially from large vendors.
Here's another blog post from Bruce Schneier where he admits bailing on TrueCrypt for Microsoft BitLocker.
He also mentions that he agrees with another writer's conclusion: "If it ever turns out that Microsoft is willing to include a backdoor in a major feature of Windows, then we have much bigger problems than the choice of disk encryption software anyway."
Me, I think that we have some pretty big problems
The one I have never read about being broken into "at rest" is a LUKS header. Assuming it was placed on the disk by someone who knows what they are doing with an appropriate password. Regardless though; LUKS, TC, VC, or BitLocker (even if solid) can be ONLY protect you while the disk is at rest. I will bank my "chips" on LUKS vs all the others I mentioned.
Yes, as long as they hadn't already obtained the key from RAM
IVPN working well. Just so fast to anywhere even in Multi-Hop. Well worth the $100 yearly. Just waiting for the Android app instead of OpenVPN as iPhone app has been released.
I ended up not working with him. But I did finally finish the project, and it's up as a guide on IVPN: https://www.ivpn.net/privacy-guides/how-to-verify-physical-locations-of-internet-servers
