A fellow sent this to me, providing proof of how ProtonMail is vulnerable to state actors and for any activism or non-regular activities.

I suggest reading into it. The first paragraph, introductory lines aside, explain the issue.

During the aftermath of the emergency landing in Minsk of a Ryanair flight between Greece and Lithuania ProtonMail provided fractional information about emails which delivered a bomb threat against the plane to several airports. The partial and seemingly willfully incomplete response by ProtonMail has led to false claims by various media against the government of Belarus.
