[ NNSquad ] ISPs Removing Their Customers' Email Encryption

ISPs Removing Their Customers' Email Encryption

(EFF): https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2014/11/starttls-downgrade-attacks

    "Another network-tampering threat to user safety has come to light from
     other providers: email encryption downgrade attacks. In recent months,
     researchers have reported ISPs in the US and Thailand intercepting
     their customers' data to strip a security flag--called STARTTLS--from
     email traffic. The STARTTLS flag is an essential security and privacy
     protection used by an email server to request encryption when talking
     to another server or client."
