Via niz sa linka, dodatan kontekst na https://www.slashgear.com/protonmail-secure-email-service-provided-user-data-that-led-to-arrest-05689657/, odakle:

There are quite a few Internet services today advertising absolute privacy from both hackers and government agencies, such as Signal for messaging. After Lavabit’s controversial shutdown, ProtonMail rose up to become the advertised email service of choice for privacy-minded users, especially those with secrets to keep. Sometimes, however, those secrets may run afoul of certain countries’ laws, which often leads to email service providers handing over data to identify users under investigation. While ProtonMail advertised privacy and security against such actions, it was apparently forced to cave in to such legal demands, leading to the arrest of climate change activists in France.

DISKUSIJA

Sa ovim je u suštini dovedena u pitanje jedina prednost usluge koju nudi ProtonMail.

Zbog načina na koji funkcioniše SMTP (link: https://searchsecurity.techtarget.com/tip/Find-out-whether-secure-email-really-protects-user-data-in-transit) nikada nije postojao način da ProtonMail osigura end-to-end enkripciju pri komunikaciji sa većinom drugih servisa, pa mejl koji primi npr. gmail adresa može da se izvuče i preda dalje.

Korisnici kojima je zaista bilo stalo do privatnosti i sigurnosti korespondencije bili su primorani da se drže ProtonMail adresa i komuniciraju između sebe. A sada ispada da su verovatno i oni koji su celokupnu komunikaciju vodili preko ovog servisa kompromitovani, jer se beleže drugi podaci koji se mogu predati vlastima...
