        https://thereader.mitpress.mit.edu/notes-from-the-chaos-communication-camp/

        It is a report from a journalist attending the latest “Chaos Communication Camp.”

        Excerpts:

        I checked out the scene at a burgeoning international conference and open-air hacker party. Here’s what I learned about protecting my privacy online.

        There are many hackers, and they love to hack into things. They can scan and see you anytime they like. Yes, they can get into your email. Yes, also your documents. Anything is possible.
