    None of this is really news.
    The man speaks the truth.

    While uninteresting to most of us, it boils down to the following.

    Physical access to a computer/device = Game over / Compromised
    Remote access to a computer/device (even guest privs) = Game over / Compromised
    Encrypted communication with a computer/device that requires 3rd party 'trust' = Game over / Compromised
    Unencrypted communication with a computer/device = Game over / Compromised

    It's a pretty sad state, and there's really not a heck of a lot we can do about it in the short term other than to stop pretending that we have secure devices and communication. People do think about fixing this stuff, but their numbers are nothing compared to those that think about breaking it. I'm pretty sure it's going to get worse before it gets better.

      in what brave new world are you living in ?

      It's still like that
      I haven't seen that in a long time, but it's LCD displays now and they take some time to mode switch, so there could just be a black screen in that instant most likely.

      P.S. This is about images left on the screen at inopportune times. I said that this used to happen.
