In the News "Internet users worried about their personal information being intercepted by U.S. intelligence agencies should stop using websites that send data to the United States, Germany's top security official said Wednesday." Cute, but pointless. France does it too, as does the UK. Documents from the Dutch intelligence agencies indicate that they, too, are involved in mass surveillance, the extent of which will supposedly be investigated by parliament.

But , seriously, why isn't every website using SSL encryption by default?


if the company you talk to is involved then using SSL doesn't matter. If we then also presumes that at least some of the certificate authorities are also involved SSL becomes almost meaningless (for keeping your stuff from Big Brother).
