It seems someone invented another way to combine PGP encryption with webmail: Freenigma. Unlike Hushmail, it works with existing webmail accounts. I have to admit I didn't read any of the Freenigma code, only their (short) FAQ, but still I feel this service should not be trusted at all until some things are fixed and some other things are explained.

Jon Ellch -- aka Johnny Cache -- was one of the presenters of the now infamous "faux disclosure" at Black Hat and DEFCON last month. Ellch and co-presenter Dave Maynor have gone silent since then, fueling speculation that the entire presentation may have been a hoax. Ellch finally broke the silence in an email to the Daily Dave security mailing list over the weekend, and one thing is clear: he is chafing under the cone of silence which has been placed over the two of them.
