The quality of this data is too damn low.

Not as bad as this though, http://cryptome.org/2013/12/Full-Disclosure.pdf

I really think we're doing disservice to an issue which might be at scale of
human-rights issue, by spamming media with 0 data news. Where is this
backdoor? How does it work? How can I recreate on my devices?

Large audience already seems to largely be in ignore mode about NSA
revelations, since revelations are very noisy but little signal.
