Unsafe ‘Comms’

President-elect Donald Trump says that ‘no computer is safe’ when it comes to keeping information private, expressing new skepticism about the security of online communications his administration is likely to use for everything from day-to-day planning to international relations.

Trump rarely uses email or computers, despite his frequent tweeting.

‘You know, if you have something really important, write it out and have it delivered by courier, the old-fashioned way,’ Trump told reporters during his annual New Year’s Eve bash. ‘Because I’ll tell you what: No computer is safe.’

Trump has repeatedly cast aside allegations by U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia tried to influence the presidential election through hacking.

President Barack Obama ordered sanctions on Russian spy agencies last week, closed two Russian compounds and expelled 35 diplomats the U.S. said were really spies.

The Russian government has denied the allegations.

Trump plans to meet with intelligence officials in coming days to learn more about the allegations.

He said he wants U.S. officials ‘to be sure because it’s a pretty serious charge.’ He pointed to intelligence failures over the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq before the U.S. invasion, and declared himself an expert in the area.

Trump is correct about this. I’ve been saying the same thing for years and warning people not to do their banking online. The risk is far to great and keyloggers are not the only problem. There are many others and if you don’t want to lose your shirt you will use cash only whenever possible.

It’s simple common sense but if you govern yourself using the principle everyone can read what you are typing or is already on your ‘computer/cellphone/wherever’ and can be hacked you won’t go far wrong.
