comment Flaws in Crypto Cat
They are getting better and I have faith in their passion. CC, like all open sourced software, is only as good as the user base and the developer base. It's evolved enormously over the last 12 months and I think the team is starting to understand how to implement crypto like professionals. They still have some learning to endure, but they will get there.

I had a hard internal debate between Rohan and Beh's answers. I wish I could do a split award. Good work guys

comment Flaws in Crypto Cat
While what Steve discovered was necessary and I'm glad he did. His conduct is shameful and absolutely unnecessary. He attacked the developers for a comment in third party code they accepted as a blackbox. It reflects more on Tom than it does the developers at CC.

comment Besides IP addresses, how else could one be identified?
I am assuming an arbitrary computer user who has accessed the internet and is using normal services such as Google and Facebook. The attacker is not a spy with access to the physical hardware, but rather remote agent who is in the middle of the communications between services like Google and Facebook and also has access to the information left behind in the public domain. I am asking about the vectors this attacker may use to identify and understand the user.

This is ridiculous and obviously a troll answer. I will edit to remove this FUD.

A community under the guidance of the stack exchange format. We can't have discussions nor ask opinions. I'd like a proper forum

Unless you live in bitcoin land. What about things like Mac addresses?

Let's assume the attacker does not have access to the computer and is a non-government entity. Let's also assume that the attacker has never met the victim
