This year at Nullcon Eva gave her talk on When governments attack: malware campaigns against activists and journalists. After introducing EFF, she explained about Dark Caracal, a possibly state-sponsored malware campaign. If we leave aside all technical aspects, this talk has a few other big points to remember.
- No work is done by a single rock star; this project was a collaboration between people from Lookout and EFF.
- We should take an ethics class before writing a "Hello World" program in computer science classes.
- People have the choice of not working for any group who will use your technical skills to abuse human rights
