@echo_pbreyer Cool, so are you going to fix flaws in SS7 protocol and its implementations/deployments? 🤣

The End of the Privacy of Digital Correspondence
The EU decided to let providers search all private chats, messages, and emails automatically for suspicious content – generally and indiscriminately. The stated aim: To prosecute child pornography. The result: Mass surveillance by means of fully automated real-time messaging and chat control and the end of secrecy of digital correspondence. A majority of the Members of the European Parliament adopted the chatcontrol regulation on 6 July 2021.
