Open Whisper Systems: There is no WhatsApp 'backdoor'
#whatsapp #security #privacy

Today, the Guardian published a story falsely claiming that WhatsApp's end to end encryption contains a "backdoor". The way this story has been reported has been disappointing. There are many quotes in the article, but it seems that the Guardian put very little effort into verifying the original technical claims they've made. Even though we are the creators of the encryption protocol supposedly "backdoored" by WhatsApp, we were not asked for comment.

Microsoft pushed out the new cumulative KB3201845 update for the Windows 10 release channel yesterday that delivers a range of fixes for the operating system. Reports are also coming in that the update is causing Internet connectivity issues for some users (DHCP issues).
