Spione mit Zugriff auf XKeyscore sind in der Lage, etwa auf Basis einer E-Mail-Adresse nahezu beliebige Informationen über beliebige Internetnutzer herauszufinden: Welche Fotos haben sie irgendwo in der Cloud abgelegt? Mit wem chatten sie und worüber? Welche Pornovorlieben haben sie? Ganz egal, ob es arabische Terroristen, deutsche Politiker oder irgendwelche unbescholtenen Bürger sind, für die sich der jeweilige Analyst zufällig interessiert.

XKeyscore ist das Super-Google der Five-Eyes-Geheimdienste, das allsehende Internet-Auge, das vermutlich mächtigste Überwachungswerkzeug der Menschheitsgeschichte.

Neue Enthüllungen belegen klar, dass NSA und Co. deutsche Politiker und Beamte in großem Stil abgehört haben. Das ist empörend - aber es verdeckt den eigentlichen Skandal.

Bruce Schneier:

In general, it’s far easier to attack a network than it is to defend the same network. This isn’t a statement about willpower or budget; it’s how computer and network security work today. A former NSA deputy director recently said that if we were to score cyber the way we score soccer, the tally would be 462–456 twenty minutes into the game. In other words, it’s all offense and no defense.

In this kind of environment, we simply have to assume that even our classified networks have been penetrated. Remember that Snowden was able to wander through the NSA’s networks with impunity, and that the agency had so few controls in place that the only way they can guess what has been taken is to extrapolate based on what has been published. Does anyone believe that Snowden was the first to take advantage of that lax security? I don’t.

This is why I find allegations that Snowden was working for the Russians or the Chinese simply laughable. What makes you think those countries waited for Snowden? And why do you think someone working for the Russians or the Chinese would go public with their haul?

I am reminded of a comment made to me in confidence by a US intelligence official. I asked him what he was most worried about, and he replied: “I know how deep we are in our enemies’ networks without them having any idea that we’re there. I’m worried that our networks are penetrated just as deeply.”

Seems like a reasonable worry to me.

(Title should have been listed as: Three weeks to save freedom of panorama in Europe)

The European Parliament is pushing to outlaw, throughout Europe, the ability to take and freely use pictures in public places (since almost all public places in Europe include recent buildings). Don't be fooled by the "commercial use" clause: for instance, uploading to Wikipedia counts as a commercial use for the purpose of this law.
Considers that the commercial use of photographs, video footage or other images of works which are permanently located in physical public places should always be subject to prior authorisation from the authors or any proxy acting for them;. This amended text is now due to be voted on by the full ...

One of the NSA's most powerful tools of mass surveillance makes tracking someone’s Internet usage as easy as entering an email address, and provides no built-in technology to prevent abuse. Today, The Intercept is publishing 48 top-secret and other classified documents about XKEYSCORE dated up to 2013, which shed new light on the breadth, depth and functionality of this critical spy system.

Intercepted communicaiton between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her personal assistant reveals Merkel's skepticism and doubts regarding potential solutions to the financial crisis in Greece.

From the top German NSA intercept, date 2011:

"Discussing the Greek financial crisis with her personal assistant on 11 October, German Chancellor Angela Merkel professed to be at a loss as to which option--another haircut or a transfer union--would be best for addressing the situation."

Look pretty much like Google’s latest self-driving eggs seen lately driving in Mountain View. The cars in the picture were built in 1954 by BMW and called 'Isetta'.

To thwart and extract hacks from anti-virus software companies, the spy agencies reverse engineered software, intercepted email and spied on web traffic. Kaspersky Lab was a major target. The result was potentially a gold mine of exploits.
