    My problem with Kape buying PIA isn’t so much the adware, it’s their current lying to users with false positives to boost sales.

    Some examples:
    CyberGhostVPN says you’re EXPOSED when using a VPN, even the Tor Browser: https://www.cyberghostvpn.com/en_US/
    DriverFix (according to Malwarebytes): https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/241580-removal-instructions-for-driverfix/

    As for metadata there’s no ethical argument for using opt out instead of a non-defaulting choice.

  2. that is an interesting topic to bring up.

    It looks like they just assume all connections are exposed unless they are CyberGhost. That’s a very misleading thing for sure. I connected to a VPN service for testing and it always seems to claim exposed but to be fair to them, they have no way to know what IPs are VPNs and which aren’t . . . of course they could just not claim that exposed thing.

    Do you have a source that shows DriverFix is related to Kape? I couldn’t find anything that stated that on malwarebytes.

    There’s no ethical argument against opt out choice. No choice has an ethical element but providing a choice is ethical.

  3. It’s listed on the Kape products page at the bottom - https://www.kape.com/product.html

  4. This was a fantastic episode, lots to learn and laugh at! I am more excited about the PinePhone the more I hear about it, even though the whole segment was supposed to cover the Purism device.

    Thanks for the reconfirmation @MichaelTunnell . Thanks @EricAdams for grabbing the Kape link.

    This stance needs a formal explanation.
