Submission + - Ministry Handling Assange's Asylum Uses Wide Open Video Conf System (threatpost.com)

chicksdaddy writes: "With Wikileaks founder Julian Assange anxiously awaiting word from the government of Ecuador on his request for political asylum, a security researcher warns that the country's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which is handling the Assange asylum request, is using a video conferencing system that is vulnerable to online snooping.

Ecuador's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) relies on a video conferencing system that is accessible from the public Internet and doesn't require a password to use, according to security researcher Dillon Beresford, who said he discovered the vulnerable conferencing system when searching online."
