I would be pretty surprised if the EFF were behind the press release
you mention.  EFF press releases are always written in very good
English, and that press release is not; nor is the website.  It seems
very unlikely to me that the EFF would let a project like this go live
without making sure the press release was idiomatic and grammatical.

And as you note, it seems EXTREMELY unlikely that the EFF would be
involved in a project like this without linking to it from their blog,
website, or twitter account.

(Finally, remember: don't run binaries from people you don't know.)
