Not even the NSA has the capability of "recording the internet".

On a further point, what is even the point of this?

Anyone high enough on the food chain to warrant an NSA search is going to know how to avoid this junk.

Don't think for one second they aren't going as fast as dollars will pay for toward exactly that goal.

I can't believe how ignorant this entire generation is. If you had said 20 years ago that the govt. was going to record every phone call in the US, you would have seen a near-revolution. Now all we hear is, "Try and do it, you'll never succeed!" Even though they likely already have and know everything you're doing. And yes, THIS IS WRONG. Doesn't matter if you have anything to hide, privacy is a RIGHT.

Only downside with that map is it fails to show them also hacking US citizens as well. Course to those who are like "I can't believe these new generations"....to be fair your older generations were just as ignorant and uninformed...the only difference was once they caught on (right or wrong) they would at least get off their lazy butts and do something proactive.


It was also because of those older generations and their poor choices that lead us down the path that helped to ruin the following generations after...so don't blame us because you are just as guilty in the end. We are all responsible for the US as it currently is....now we are reaping what we sowed and it's only going to get worse. It took us 50 years to get to this point and you can blame everyone you want but at the end of the day each and every one of us are to be blamed.

Once we lose petrodollar status will be about the time the US feels the full brunt of true economic doom...will make the last 6 years look like a picnic when true hyperinflation begins. Our dollar is already useless even with petrodollar status....imagine how much of a hit it will take once the rest of the world stops using it. Do you know what we call a country that over prints their money? A banana republic....we are running as fast as we can down that street.

My point proven. Shift blame, take no responsibility, and be a victim.

I doubt it had anything to do with the older generation's uniforms, either. Moving on, nothing to see here.

At some point I'm afraid these spooks are going to turn loose of some niftily named little virus or program that is going to do more than they or anyone else is bargaining for. I mean think about it, if the entire organization has no oversight what the hell kind of experimental, unproven, violatorware do they have just waiting to deploy for its first run?

They don't have to.... side-channel attacks or traffic analysis can sometimes yield what they need....

In fact, many Linux distros have a SSL flaw with GnuTLS that was recently proven: http://arstechnica.com/security/2014/03/critical-crypto-bug-leaves-linux-hundreds-of-apps-open-to-eavesdropping/

It's automation..... and it makes things easier. Ask any SA managing a few hundred servers...

Also, you are wrong. Most people are not that tech savvy and many of the NSA targets are not hackers or computer experts. Try defining, training, and enforcing opsec to a few dozen or hundred people. Security is HARD. All it takes is a single person to slip up once and that could lead to APT inflatrating a network.
