While there has been a lot of hoopla over Kim Dotcom’s new privacy site, MEGA, some people aren’t too optimistic about its security. In a Forbes post, one cryptographer, Nadim Kobeissi, stated, “It’s a nice website, but when it comes to cryptography they seem to have no experience. Quite frankly it felt like I had coded this in 2011 while drunk.” Yikes. The harsh review is related to what MEGA calls its “user-controlled encryption,” which basically means the encryption happen in the cloud and requires no software to download. By providing this feature, the encryption code may be vulnerable to theft from Mega or outsiders. [Source: Forbes]
