I am astonished by the daily amount of catastrophic news about data breaches, security attacks, failures… etc , which are almost always due to the current architecture of the web.
So I thought I’d start this thread as a wiki with a categorized list of events that we wouldn’t have seen if we had the Safe Network instead, and links to articles explaining how Safe would fix each issue.
I want to put 3 rules for this thread :
- only post links to news of such events in the wiki ( edit this post )
- refrain posting political / ideological “troll bait” events…
- use replies to discuss , not the wiki.
Lets start :
