bbc anti ‘secure’ internet fud

The bbc does not like the internet even in programmes that do it for there subject while there motives might be pure it comes across as something else – hero worship of apple producrs or something like that.

The thing to ‘fud’ is a non apple secure email server ‘box’ made with a raspberry pi (my blog) and using ancient wheezy (my blog) and rightly so deserves to be called a scam as apple did not make it.

Take technical issues like  …

End to end encryption is not possible nixed by nsa and gchq hundreds of interment years ago- you need a domain for ssl, not an ip address.

Port 25 blocking is another problem*, and the device had issues with cross site scripting.

This ‘secure email’ was presented as an impossible thing by the bbc – or lets not discuss the limitations or the hard aspects of internet security – however when you can achieve some of it with a proper email server and gnugpg which was not mentioned by the journalists of fud.at the bbc

As i am the ape who runs mail servers here in the zoo and probably does not know what i am doing the bbc forgets that while indeed the device is shit – proper mail servers can be achieved on certain terms..

However if the ‘nah no la laa laa atttitude’ continues the bbc could be argued is doing the bidding of both the nsa and gchq looking for those sensationalised headlines rather than the meat and potatoes of the issue.

The panacea in a box did need to be outed as shit but the bbc ‘s conclusion is one of which government propaganda is also in alignment with.

Gee fancy that

Whether facts are too hard (or boring) for the bbc to do is something for you to think on.

*you want spam?
