Data of half a million people affected in attack on Red Cross
The personal data of 515,000 people were compromised as a result of an attack on the servers of the International Committee of the Red Cross.
Most of the data belongs to people in a “highly vulnerable situation” – those separated from their families due to military conflicts, migration and natural disasters, missing persons and their families, as well as persons in custody.
Who is behind the attack is unknown. The Red Cross urged hackers to “do the right thing” by not selling or distributing the information.
The media reported on the plans of the UK government to turn the public against end-to-end encryption through advertising
The UK government will launch an “advertising attack” on end-to-end encryption, reports Rolling stone. The main goal is to turn the public against Meta’s (former Facebook) decision to implement encryption in Messenger.
The UK Home Office has hired advertising agency M&C Saatchi to carry out this initiative.
The main argument of law enforcement officers against end-to-end encryption is a potential threat to the safety of children and the complication of identifying intruders. Due to such concerns, Meta has been forced to delay its default rollout on its Messenger and Instagram until 2023.
