Security of In-house PM/Chat systems

TEK asked the same questions , I just asked Millard pointblank if he provides forum PM"s or conversations to LE ? Legitimate questions . He didnt answer .
TEK asked questions. You made false statements of fact.

To be clear, MESO has never received any request from any law enforcement official for any type of information. MESO has never provided any information to law enforcement. In 20 years, MESO has never been contacted whether it's been Operation Raw Deal, Gear Grinder or Cyber Juice. MESO has never had anything that they've wanted.

Thats all I wanted . And yes it was a question ,and you answered it .
 
I wonder about information gathering and trading . Plus someones making a tidy profit off our conversations , and it sure isnt us . :rolleyes:
And yes we members with popular threads provide someone with some extra revenue .

You conveniently changed the premise of your argument.

TEK started a thread about PMs. The context was PMs.

PMs = "conversations" on this forum.

You stated "someones making a tidy profit off our conversations".

NO. No one is making any profit off private "conversations".

I meant someone is making a tidy profit off all of our conversations , public and private . Clicks and counts . And I believe that , or it wouldnt be running ...
 
You see where my stance is...but sometimes when I talk about security guys look at me like Ted Cruz when he talks about religion. This is more of a public service announcement that if people are out there fuckin around, they better get right or at least know they are operating at their own discretion of whats best for them.
Sorry to make something out of nothing if you feel like this discussion is unwarranted. I just personally believe members should take their own security in their own hands, I trust the MESO staff but also believe that at the end of the day it's up to the user to use common sense.
It's one of the most relevant and important topics for members of the AAS community. It's also one of the disregarded and ignored topics. Few people take even the most basic steps at maintaining privacy and security.
 
<<has Meso staff ever been requested to provide records to LE?

NO.

<<what is their stance on that?

MESO would only provide data if compelled by a valid court in the appropriate jurisdiction.

Precisely the answers I would have expected. Members should be taking measures to protect themselves, e.g. by using PGP to encrypt their PMs.

Isn't that the truth. While I'm on the subject of security and privacy, at the risk of being critical, one of the things that I find truly annoying about this site is its' reliance on CloudFlare. CloudFlare makes the use of Tor to visit this site very difficult to impossible.

u get used to it....
it used to be you would have to log back in every 2-3 mins, now it seems like an endless barrage of captcha. Nonetheless I'm always impressed at the the infrastructure MESO has in place. Even in light of the ongoing ddos attacks MESO is very rarely inaccessible..

cheers MESO
