I so badly hope that the new WhatsApp privacy policy update will make people switch to Signal and other secure (so not Telegram, for the record) messengers.

Back when Facebook acquired WhatsApp I quit it right away, hopefully more people will, now.

This is what happens when a tech company becomes too big:

#google using its monopoly as a weapon to threaten governments, and making political ads for their own benefits.

#Google starts to lock out non-official Chrome builds like #Chromium. The #web is a cricual infrastructure these days and as such we need independent browsers and rendering engines!

#Linux users should patch now to block new “FreakOut” malware which exploits new vulnerabilities. These ongoing attacks involve a new malware variant, called ‘FreakOut.’

The attack exploits the following CVE’s:

CVE-2020-28188 – released 28/12/20 – TerraMaster TOS
CVE-2021-3007 – released 3/1/21 – Zend Framework
CVE-2020-7961 – released 20/03/20 – Liferay Portal

Due to me not using WhatsApp, I asked a friend (let's say western "region") to try this with the provided file and another random mp4 file.

The exact same happened.
Both mp4 files view perfectly on a mobile device and computer... the WhatsApp mocking one just does not upload with a random error (WhatsApp status)

Anyone who can debunk this for me? I can't imagine any other factors....

I don't think anyone at Signal will ever read this but; good luck people! I fully understand that the insane amount of users joining right now is creating significant server and traffic overloads.

Good luck 💪👊 <3
