More badly sourced propaganda masquerading as security news on the Maidsafe twitter feed. For example even the head of the French government’s cyber security agency Guillaume Poupard is on record not days ago contradicting what is claimed in this latest piece. Oh and the “independent security researchers” aka SecureWorks methodology has been widely called into question even in the more mainstream press.
If Maidsafe must re-tweet tabloid quality security news at least try cross check with a more respected security researcher sites (some of which I have linked previously) to avoid the more embarrassingly wrong and sensationalist/pro-war propaganda stuff that really does reflect badly on Maidsafe for very little media attention gain. I really disliked having to start this thread. I only point these issues out as I care about Maidsafe’s image among the security aware crowd as this should be a network that interests them, but I think I will call it a day on this topic now. Hopefully they are aware of what they are doing at this point, I chalk this up to not having enough qualified people available for press relations.
