Dozens of arrests after "secure" messaging app cracked Anonymous 03/09/2021 (Tue) 18:37:50 [Preview] No. 14650
During a national police action from the police in the Netherlands and Belgium, 75 house searches were carried out and 30 people were arrested after investigation services had managed to crack encrypted messages via the "Sky ECC" message service from various criminal organizations.

28 firearms have been seized in Rotterdam, says the OM. According to the OM, thousands of kilos of drugs were seized, drug labs dismantled and 43 people arrested in previous actions in the context of the same investigation.

Since February of this year, investigative services have been able to monitor -likely via a server that they had taken over- the messages that suspects sent via Sky ECC. As a result, “dozens of planned serious violent crimes, including kidnappings, liquidations and shootings,” said the National Prosecutor’s Office in a press release.

But... but... "SKY ECC is the world's most secure messaging app with 521 ECC encryption, brute-force protection"

Hey everyone, migrate to V3 Tor as fast as you can because it's new and really great and is the most secure thing ever, much better than that boring obsolete V2 with its smelly old crypto!

"SKY ECC is the most secure communications platform you can buy. We're so confident it's secure, we'll give you $1,000,000 if you can defeat our security."

I wonder which agency collected the $1,000,000.


"SKY ECC platform remains secure and no authorized Sky ECC device has been hacked" Anonymous 03/10/2021 (Wed) 10:59:58 [Preview] No.14652 del
On March 8, 2021, SKY ECC received notification of several articles published in Belgium and the Netherlands alleging that Belgian and/or Dutch authorities have cracked or hacked SKY ECC encrypted communication software. SKY ECC maintains, after thorough investigation, that all such allegations are false.

SKY ECC authorized distributors in Belgium and the Netherlands brought to our attention that a fake phishing application falsely branded as SKY ECC was illegally created, modified and side-loaded onto unsecure devices, and security features of authorized SKY ECC phones were eliminated in these bogus devices which were then sold through unauthorized channels.

SKY ECC has not been contacted by any investigative authority. SKY ECC did not authorize or cooperate with the investigative authorities or those involved with the distribution of the fake phishing application. These actions are malicious and SKY ECC is actively investigating and pursuing legal action against the offending individuals for impersonation, false lights, trademark infringement, injurious falsehood, defamation, and fraud.

SKY ECC is built on “zero-trust” security principles which assumes every request as a breach and verifies it by employing layers of security to protect its users’ messages. All SKY ECC communications are encrypted through private tunnels via private distributed networks. All messages are encrypted with today’s highest level of encryption, 521-bit elliptic curve cryptography and end-to-end encryption.

“SKY ECC believes that the individual right to privacy is paramount for anyone acting within the law,” says Jean-François Eap, CEO of SKY ECC. “The platform exists for the prevention of identity theft and hacking, the protection of personal privacy rights, and the secure operation of legitimate personal and business affairs. With the global rise of corporate espionage, cybercrime and malicious data breaches, privacy and protection of information is the foundation of the effective functioning for many industries including legal, public health, vaccine supply chains, manufacturers, celebrities and many more.”

SKY ECC firmly denies any allegation that it is the “platform of choice for criminals”. SKY ECC has a strict zero-tolerance policy that prohibits any criminal activity on its platforms. SKY ECC users and authorized distributors are expressly prohibited under the Terms of Service from using or distributing a SKY ECC device for any illicit, illegal or criminal use. Any accounts used for criminal activity are immediately deactivated.

SKY ECC service experienced temporary interruptions in connection with its servers on March 8, 2021 from 8 PM PST to 4AM PST. Services are now back to normal and SKY ECC has not been contacted by any investigative authority. SKY ECC servers do not store any user data, messages or backups.

SKY ECC remains a global leader in secure messaging technology, and all SKY ECC phones purchased directly from SKY ECC or its authorized distributors remain secure. We continue to stand by our promise of secure devices, secure networks and secure communications.

Nothing is really secure on either the internet nor smart phones. That would be basic knowledge

Your "authorized" qualifier keeps blinking in red neon. Are you saying that as soon as a SkyECC client is hacked, it's "unauthorized" and doesn't count as an authorized device that's been hacked?

Cut the bullshit and do a detailed and accurate technical whitepaper on how counterfeit SkyECC devices allowed encryption bypass if you want to convince networking people and cipherpunks of a lack of culpability on your part.

having a phone number linked to "secure" app isn't making it secure

Honestly, have never heard of Sky ECC, not that I stay on top of stuff like this. Anything commercial tends to be crap though imo.
