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.
