Comment: NSA Methods for FF infiltration ? (Score 0) 99

by JackDonovan (#45046089) Attached to: The Hail Mary Cloud and the Lessons Learned
I am running FF 18.0.2 here and was in the process of advising somebody that proper symmetric crypto (IPSEC in this case) was actually providing REAL security, if the key is carefully transported so that they cannot copy it at some kind of police checkpoint (airport). Then I got a little crash of FF (with JS enabled). loading the core file and doing a stacktrace yielded:

We really need to record all bytes txmitted and then review the dumps when we get core files. Forward to Kaspersky for analysis. Stick it to them.

If you can't understand it, it is intuitively obvious.

Working...
