In the class, the interaction between the expert and the students was more like sharing and discussion. Some of the questions they asked involved deep-level techniques, for instance, why not all big websites in China use https to encrypt data transmission?  If you reverse the installation of some programs on the cell phone, you may find extra software bound with them. Is this against the law? If your account is not stolen but used for advertisement. Does this mean your identity credential has been stolen?
