    Deployed to another branch?! How is she not fired and arrested?

    Q3: Does the application come with a super-power backdoor?
    The code snippets Cure53 spotted and documented indicate the possible presence of a functionality that might - under certain conditions - be used as a backdoor against rooted devices or Android devices that have been tampered with. Cure53 found no evidence of a backdoor that would affect off-the-shelf devices.

    She is helping to defeat the "evil foreign-backed terrorist attack", of course she will be rewarded rather than sacked. But what about due process and protection of client privacy? Who cares, what matters is defeating the "enemy". Expect her get a cushy job thanks to her "patriotic" duty.

    P.S. That was satire, of course.

    Though the real question is, who cares if it comes with a backdoor, when it's completely demonstrated that messages are scanned for content, and deleted messages are retained for future use?

    On a global scale ... Stan Chart has been arse raped by a fair number of regulators in far too many countries - stopped keeping track.

    Just saying... lets see what HKMA and the rest have to say about this incident.

    For me the takeaway is - "5" more employees need to be fired for sharing credentials and someone in their internal security department / IT department needs to take a fall for not having enough fail safe to allow 5 credentials to be abused.

    Would be nice if they actually said "shut up" - would be a viral sound bite and a great companion to the "PLEASE fuckoff".

    Should have shown into the guy’s face to “help with filming” as riot police often claim:

    Tear gas leak / experiment or something earlier today in Tuen Muen? It is said that plenty of people got hit with whatever gas it was. Of course PPRB denies claims on it being tear gas tests.
