Learned helplessness is the worst thing that you can fall for.
Be informed, don’t just jump on flashy headlines that claim there is no hope for safety or privacy.
Journalists that have hastily thrown articles together and are shouting from the rooftops that Signal and WhatsApp’s encryption protocols have been compromised are flat out wrong.
There has been no evidence found of this thus far in the documents. The leaks talk about getting malware into the devices and then compromising the phone first, but the apps themselves are as of yet untouched.
Direct your outrage at the actual problems that were revealed: like intelligence agencies withholding knowledge of exploits / buying them and then leaving them wide open for use by any actor, or how the CIA writes its malware code to obscure its USG origin, enabling them to perform false-flag attacks, among many of the other reports that came out of the first Vault 7 leak.
