There’s a follow-up to a story on The Intercept that I had excerpted last week.
Cora Currier and Morgan Marquis-Boire report:
Hacking Team’s CEO David Vincenzetti responded to our piece over the weekend with a letter addressed to The Intercept’s editors (and also sent to the company’s mailing list):
There is little new in the recent piece in The Intercept, Secret Manuals Show the Spyware Sold to Despots and Cops Worldwide. (Published Oct 29, 2014.)
Despite the headline, the “secret manuals” do not show that anything at all was “sold to despots” worldwide or elsewhere. That remains the conjecture of the authors.
