Official statement from @Mer__edith: the new EU chat controls proposal for mass scanning is the same old surveillance with new branding.

Whether you call it a backdoor, a front door, or “upload moderation” it undermines encryption & creates significant vulnerabilities.

"The fact that the EU interior ministers want to exempt police officers, soldiers, intelligence officers and even themselves from chat control scanning proves that they know exactly just how unreliable and dangerous the snooping algorithms are that they want to unleash on us citizens."

This is another proof that systemd is an anti-pattern for security: with its crawling and ever extending web of dependencies, it extends the surface of vulnerability to orders of magnitude, and once embraced not even large distro communities can defend you from that.

Telegram claimed as a secure messenger, but its ordinary chats are not end-to-end encrypted, and so-called private chats accessible in non-easy way. Coincidence?
