    Default Telegram Starts To Wayang After Indon Shuts It! Mudland Still Undecided! Zikapore?

    KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian government does not intend to restrict the use of instant messaging application Telegram for now, said Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi on Sunday (Jul 16).

    He was responding to questions about the Indonesian government's decision to block all access to Telegram, following revelations that several forums hosted on the application were "full of radical and terrorist propaganda".

    Zahid said monitoring by Malaysian authorities so far found no evidence related to crime or terrorism as far as Telegram was concerned.

    The Deputy Prime Minister said the government respects the rights of consumers in the country and does not intend to interfere with users who use Telegram to chat with their contacts.

    "The KDN’s (Home Ministry’s) observation, especially by the Anti-Terrorism Unit and the Special Branch of the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM), find that the application (Telegram) has so far not been used in matters related to crime or for recruiting or raising funds for terrorism activities," Zahid said.

    He added that the government would continue to monitor the use of social media applications to detect suspicious activities.


    Telegram founder Pavel Durov on Sunday said the application would shut down "terrorist-related" public channels, following the Indonesian government's decision to block access to the platform.

    From child pornography to terrorism. This is proof you can't be traced on telegram, yes?

    It is very hard to block an app. An App is not a website.

    Even if Telegram was successfully put out of business the terrorists would simply move on to another app that provides secure encrypted channels of communication.

    Also note that the government can only block web versions of Telegram :


    https://latesthackingnews.com/2017/0...ked-indonesia/

    The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology on July 14, 2017, has asked the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to terminate access (blocking) to Telegram’s 11 Domain Name System (DNS). This blocking must be done because the many channels in the service are charged with the propaganda of radicalism, terrorism, hatred, invitation or how to assemble bombs, how to attack, disturbing images, and others that are contrary to Indonesian laws and regulations.
    The 11 DNS controls are blocked as follows: t.me, telegram.me, telegram.org, core.telegram.org, desktop.telegram.org, macos.telegram.org, web.telegram.org, Venus.web. Telegram.org, pluto.web.telegram.org, flora.web.telegram.org, and flora-1.web.telegram.org. The impact of this blocking is the inaccessibility of the web version Telegram service (not accessible via computer).
    To circumvent the blocks by the Indo governments terrorists can easily switch to Puffin browser to access the sites blocked above.

    This war against terrorists cannot be won by censorship alone. Terrorists aren't your average dumb crim. https://www.puffinbrowser.com/
