So this is getting interesting. Not.

The hackers in that Pastebin post say they've been working on #Protonmail for months and solicited help from other groups. And while they had Protonmail distracted, managed to install a backdoor undetected.

That comes on the heels of this from Protonmail earlier this month, about a bad dude with the 'Aphosis Squad' getting arrested and pleading guilty to regular attacks on Protonmail...

*sigh* Looks like I'm changing again.

What?!?

'If you have used #Protonmail in the past several months it is probable we have your Username/Password and your decrypted emails recorded on our own private server. We also have names, addresses (If entered), contact lists, IP addresses, and much more. We would not have been able to do this if Protonmail did not deliberately mis-configure their code to harm their own users.'

I like the marvellous interface of Sailfish, the Finnish design. After having experienced it for about 4, 5 years I have to admit that the lack of a paid appstore remains a burden, a barrier to become a third OS. This will be the fate of every alternative too Apple and Google: marginal, niche. For a real alternative we need a European credit card system.
