+ - New Firefox Plugin with GnuPG binary built in. ->

fotoflo writes "We have just released MailCloak a new line of closed source add-ons for Windows Mail Clients (all pop3/smtp clients are theoretically supported, but we've only tested 8 or 10), Firefox and all Trident based browsers (Internet Explorer). MailCloak uses the GnuPG binary to encrypt email for Gmail, Yahoo Mail, MSN Live Mail, Google Apps, MSN Live Domains, and about a dozen Chinese web services. Please try MailCloak and tell us what you think on our forum. Also, before our release we went around freenode and several forums and everyone seemed to say that as long as we didn't touch the GnuPG code (we haven't) and help distribute the source (we link to GnuPG.org) we could include it in our binary. This all sounds right, right?"

Hey all, First off, a disclaimer, i work for Global Web Security Systems (gWebs).

Our software grabs outgoing and incoming data at the transport layer as you use google products and tosses it through GnuPG.

Our MailCloak product encrypts gmail, (Yahoo, and MSN, etc) in firefox and IE.

DocCloak, in private beta, will do the same thing for Google Docs, and Zoho office.

SaaSCloak, again in private beta, works with google sites, and we are adding several other cloud services.

Check this stuff out at http://www.getmailcloak.com/ to install MailCloak

and http://www.gwebs.com/ to learn more about the company.

and everything seems normal. A search for ææ or gaming on baidu returns a thousand similar sites: http://www.baidu.com/s?wd=%D3%CE%CF%B7 , all of them working. Lesson to be learned: twitter isnt a great news source, and neither are twitter-derived news sites.

Mommy, what happens to your files when you die?
