- Mastodon is a federated and open version of twitter. You can use choose between multiple different competing public and private servers called instances. You can also run and use your own instance which is best practice from a trust perspective. Users can interact and 'follow' across instances.

- DMs are not encrypted so instance admins can read them.

- The bitcoinhackers instance is run by @nvk who we trust to keep it up, protect our privacy, and to not censor us.

So here's some post-mortem, I think an event like this needs some examination.

First, huge thanks to @undeath for not only reading his logs, but actually switching his brain on and noticing this; as he expressed himself, it's pretty surprising that no one else noticed since it went into a release in August last year.

Second, a big apology from me for introducing the bug. I guess I'll start by explaining what I remember about that code edit.

Running GrapheneOS on a Pixel 4a thanks to @mattodell
The TFTC YouTube instructions (search for Matt Odell Graphene) were necessary to get by a few of the steps that didn’t have all the details on the Graphene site instructions. I would recommend following the steps on the Graphene site and using the YouTube tutorial to follow along and double check each step.
