The Washington Post recently revealed that over 120 countries, including Malaysia had purchased rigged encryption machines from a company that was secretly owned and controlled by the US Central Intelligence Agency.

  • Numerous countries had obtained rigged encryption devices from Crypto AG.
  • Crypto AG is from Switzerland, a country well-known for its neutral stance towards other nations.
  • The CIA has the decryption key on the rigged encryption devices purchased from Crypto AG. It is not clear at this point if there are other functions available to US Central intelligence.
  • Communication between government officials and any relating diplomacy devices were rigged.
  • Information data would be a threat in which secrets were being exposed to third parties.
  • Information is one of the biggest cyberwarfare weapons in this century.
  • The best practice to avoid such consequences is for a country to implement its own R&D in safety, following the likes of China and India.
