There are challenges with crappy media reports that are partially accurate, sensationalized and poorly sourced. However, that topic deserves an many articles of its own. This article is to point out the less sensationalized details from the reports which imply something very different than implying the CIA or Hackers can get defeat encryption.Buried in the Times article is the more accurate sentence... "According to the statement from WikiLeaks, government hackers can penetrate Android phones and collect ‘audio and message traffic before encryption is applied."
Translation: the CIA can install software on certain phones and record the screen or keystrokes in real time.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
BUT... THERE IS HOPE IN ICLOAK'S STRATEGYWhen we started developing the iCloak® Stik in 2013 after the Edward Snowden leaks, we considered all of the possible solutions and almost ever one failed to address the problem of a "spook in the machine".
The reason iCloak is effective is that if spyware was installed on your computer, it would have to be stored somewhere. That "somewhere" is on your hard drive. When you use iCloak, you completely replace your entire computer operating system and have no access to anything stored on your hard drive. Therefore, no spyware can load when you start up a computer with an iCloak Stik.
Because iCloak loads and works only in RAM (temporary, volatile memory), even if a super-hacker was able to infect you during a time you were using iCloak, when you restart the machine again everything that was stored in RAM will be wiped out forever. Poof! Restart in iCloak again and you are safe once more.
The approach of starting with a secure computer is the only approach we can think of to defeat an attack of this type.
