Well, that was quick. Yesterday Google announced its new email security/encryption transparency report, which revealed that Comcast and Verizon were primary offenders, in not using TLS to encrypt emails, making them much more vulnerable to surveillance. And, in less than 24 hours, Comcast quickly said that it is rushing to roll out TLS, with a company spokesperson saying it will be out there "within a matter of weeks" and that the company is being "very aggressive about this." That's good to see. Once again, greater transparency leads to greater protection.
