NIS Admits to Packet Tapping Gmail

Over the past few weeks we have finally come to see that the known flaws and weaknesses with HTTPS and digital certificates are being exploited. A time to reflect and rethink on the whole system?

It has come to light that the National Intelligence Service has been using a technique known as “packet tapping” to spy on emails sent and received using Gmail, Google’s email service. This is expected to have a significant impact, as it proves that not even Gmail, previously a popular “cyber safe haven” because of its reputation for high levels of security, is safe from tapping.
