So, El Reg identifies exactly where to insert a spy and a trojan.

Should we infer anything from the fact of the story going public? Candidate explanations such as:

  • They already report to MI5?
  • Someone in the "ban encryption" brigade believes the story will serve their cause?
  • It's a double-bluff to try and send out a misleading message about the spooks' capabilities?

If it were any of my business, I expect I'd try harder to home in on it.
