    Does anyone have an idea how this was done? Apparently the keys for EncroChat were changing all the time but the NCA were still able to crack the encryption?

    I don’t know about the stuff going on surrounding EncroChat. Can someone explain?

    I wonder if that $1billion Camorra/ISIS amphetamine bust this week was related or are the bad guys just having a *terrible* couple of months?

    Imagine spending £1600 on a trap phone and still getting caught

    This is quite amazing considering the fact that they always catch up with the sneaky ones . The police breached the servers on EncroChat which subsequently revealed the communication and identities , which means they basically broke the device but not the encryption

    be-well

    What did we learn today?

    OpSec is the key here. Never put your whole safety on one factor.

    The Dutch police also arrest over 100 criminals because of that same hack

    I would NOT want to be the CEO of EncroChat right now. This is not the usual case of pissed off customers.

    Looks like another company has already stepped in to take the remaining customers.

    >Already, other encrypted phone companies are trying to fill the void left by Encrochat. A company called Omerta has been advertising directly to Encrochat’s old customers. “ENCROCHAT HACKED, USERS EXPOSED & ARRESTS GALORE – THE KING IS DEAD,” a blog post on its site reads. Omerta told Motherboard in an email it has seen a rise in traffic recently.

    Although, I did chuckle at there marketing. It gives off a borderlands vibe to me

    >”Did you narrowly escape the recent Mass Extinction Event? Celebrate with 10 percent off. Join the Omerta family and communicate with impunity.”

    Beside the removal of gps chip etc. What’s the benefits of using this over something like Wickr?

    Wonder how many bitcoin addresses they managed to associate with purchases?

    That’s not a lot of guns or ammo at all. 1800 rounds any gun owner would have that
