I agree about Levison, I’m just quibbling over the word “persecution.” I’m that one guy that always points out that a “tragedy” is a kind of stage play, not a mudslide or whatever. It’s a slow day at work.

They’re hardly the only ones out there developing firmware. These same efforts probably allow their own systems to be compromised the same way.

It would be foolish to take for granted the physical security of the machines you run encryption software upon, but the use of modern network services have led people to do just that.
