EFF publishes annual report

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has published its annual "Who Has Your Back" report and its not good news for WhatsApp and AT&T users. With concern over privacy growing daily, such as Snowdens NSA snooping revelations, the non-profit organisation rates organisations according to various measures such as their transparency, responsiveness to breaches etc.

It was better news for Apple, Adobe, Yahoo, Dropbox and, who all achieved the highest scores, but worryingly Google dropped the ball by scoring lower than last year.

The EFF report is now in its fifth year and is fast becoming the bellweather for the industries security performance. A spokesman said "more and more companies are voluntarily speaking out about government data requests and giving users tools to fight back."
