Default Bombshell Report Finds Phone Network Encryption Was Deliberately Weakened

From https://www.vice.com/en/article/4avn...ately-weakened

Quote:
A weakness in the algorithm used to encrypt cellphone data in the 1990s and 2000s allowed hackers to spy on some internet traffic, according to a new research paper.

The paper has sent shockwaves through the encryption community because of what it implies: The researchers believe that the mathematical probability of the weakness being introduced on accident is extremely low. Thus, they speculate that a weakness was intentionally put into the algorithm. After the paper was published, the group that designed the algorithm confirmed this was the case.
As somebody has said "The only thing you can count on these days, are your fingers"
