It's software, mores specifically OS software... Everyone copies everyone from now until forever...
RSA and EMC declined to answer questions for this story, but RSA said in a statement: "RSA always acts in the best interest of its customers and under no circumstances does RSA design or enable any back doors in our products. Decisions about the features and functionality of RSA products are our own."
That is one of the biggest loads of horse shit I have ever heard. If any part of that statement from the RSA were true then the NSA deal would never have happened and the NSA Formula would never even have been an option, much less the default...
... and they are not going to use it for this kind of case.
Bomb threat from unknown source? Boston? Possible foreign connections? The NSA is allegedly supposed to be involved in investigation of terror threats. It's the other stuff they're doing that's got people upset.
Why would the NSA crack TOR to spy on terrorists and such like they're supposed to when they can be stalking potential love interests and making sure their Significant Others are faithful?
