DANG LEAKERS !!!
« on: June 12, 2013, 04:03:57 AM »
I've had it with all this annoying spy stuff.
Everybody already knows that government bureaucracies are the very embodiment of evil and inefficiency.
And, all the boring stuff that they classify, needlessly,...
My thinking is that they do it primarily because they don't want the general public to know what a bunch of overpaid, incompetent losers we have running our intelligence agencies.

But,...just in case,...THEY are monitoring the MASM Forum for signs of discontent and rebelliousness,...
I DISAVOW EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE EVER DONE !!!

DON'T PANIC! We'll work on a Thunderbird add-on that installs itself silently and infects 100 Mio users. It will randomly generate hidden text and append it to a Billion mails per day. Of course, that text will contain plenty of, ehm, interesting words, y'know, of the kind that makes Hutch sleep badly (reverse injection, blonde shells etc). After a week or so, we'll read in the news that a server farm somewhere in the Middle West overheated and caught fire... etc etc ...

they don't just want to hide their f-ups
they have to create a job for themselves, to begin with
about 80% of gov't staffers are otherwise unnecessary
so, they make up all this crap that can be "classified"
then, they can suck on the teet of the American taxpayer without feeling so bad

Is that something like "We have to protect you from yourself and you have to pay for it." ?

Apparently the way the surveillance works is that they install traffic splitters at collection points, like Room 641A. This provides for the deniability that "no direct access to servers" has been provided. All they really need is the SSL certificates from the cooperating companies. The raw textual data is then dumped onto hard drives. Since this is too much data to sort through they need some way to make it searchable. So they enter all the metadata into a database. Using this metadata as an index they can now retrieve any of the raw data associated with it. This same metadata also allows them to retrieve the social connections contained in the metadata so that when they single someone out they can explore their entire social network. Even a wrong number can make you a target.

I don't think it's a good idea that a kids complete network history can be used against them years down the road. An even worse possibility is soft control of politicians who don't want certain embarrassing information leaked. They have already tried to take unclassified information in the possession of agents that spoke against them and retroactively classified it in order to charge that agent with possession of classified material. They even got caught in court doing this. It doesn't even matter how responsibly they're using it, and I assume at present it's primary use is at least fairly responsible. With such a system in place there will be some point in the future, regardless of how distant, where that is no longer the case.

Jochen,

Rumours say Merkel considers a strong response to Obama 8)

it's a nice persiflage, but far from reality.

I've been 'screaming' for years about this..
Of course I 'looked like a fool' and the family laughed... well I'm roaring with laughter now, and they're full of excuses.

I've always told my kids and family NOT to put any 'valuable' personal info on the network.. always use different pseudonyms.
I disconnect my router every few days to receive a new IP.. etc If 'they' target you they find the info.. but make it as difficult as possible.
There's nothing more annoying than noise for a code breaker/monitor.

Keep your sensitive stuff OFFLINE
