It is good praxis to read articles before broadcasting them. Schneier has a retraction at the bottom, and a followup. This story is not correct.


@mdhughes @dredmorbius
That is the story from WhatsApp at this time. They are in a sealed court opposing this requirement, but may lose.

@mdhughes Thanks.

As Schneier writes:

"Yesterday, I blogged about a Facebook plan to backdoor WhatsApp by adding client-side scanning and filtering. It seems that I was wrong, and there are no such plans."


... though there's more to the story. Still doesn't seem that the original allegation is valid. Yet.
